Audit classes if you are 55 and over

CU senior auditor registration for fall semester set for Sept. 4-5

Are you a Colorado resident 55 and over? Satisfy your curiosity and learn something new with the Senior Auditors Program at the University of Colorado Boulder.  

The program, sponsored by the CU-Boulder Alumni Association, allows seniors to audit CU-Boulder classes tuition-free.  Registration for CU-Boulder fall semester courses will take place Tuesday, Sept. 4 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday, Sept. 5 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Koenig Alumni Center, 1202 University Ave., at the southeast corner of Broadway and University.  Free parking is available on a limited basis in the Koenig lot.

Although tuition is free, there is a nonrefundable $25 fee to defray the Alumni Association’s administrative expenses. Participants do not need to be CU graduates.  

This program gives Colorado’s senior citizens the opportunity to attend classes on the CU-Boulder campus. Participants should check online first for the list of CU-Boulder classes offered for fall 2012 at

Auditors must obtain permission from professors to audit courses. Classes began Monday. Aug. 27, so the Alumni Association recommends auditors attend classes to obtain permission to audit from professors at that time. Regular tuition-paying students have priority over auditors.  Senior Auditors do not earn academic credit for courses taken.

Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Korean, Farsi, Portuguese and Hindi courses cannot be audited. Continuing Education courses, first-year law classes and history 3000-level undergraduate seminars and all graduate classes cannot be audited, either.

The Senior Auditors Program was established by the Board of Regents in 1973 and has grown to involve about 600 participants annually. For more information, call the Alumni Association at 303-492-8484 or visit
