Graduate Student Status
Graduate students are considered part-time if registered for 11 equated credits or less, and full-time if registered for 12 or more equated credits.
Individuals satisfying the New York City/State residency requirements and who are 60 years of age or older (as of the first day of the semester or session) are permitted to enroll in undergraduate courses on a space-available basis. Proof of age is required by the College; the following forms of proof of age are acceptable: Medicare card, driver’s license, or birth certificate.
Administrative fee: A non-refundable administrative fee of $80 per semester or session is charged senior citizens who are enrolling on an audit basis. The application fee and Student Activity Fee are not charged. Senior citizens, as students, are responsible for the Consolidated Service Fee and any other fees they might incur.
Graduate courses: Senior citizens are not permitted to register free of tuition or fee for graduate-level courses. Senior citizens may register for graduate courses on a space-available basis and are charged the graduate tuition rate regardless. No exception is made for matriculated or non-matriculated status. The Student Activity Fee and application fee must also be paid.
