A senior citizen (60 years of age or older) who is a resident of South Carolina and who is not employed full-time can enroll in classes free of charge providing there is available space in the class. Senior citizens may register for classes under the free tuition provision the day prior to the first day of class for the current term. A special senior citizen application must be completed in the Office of Admissions, Recruitment and Scholarships. Senior Citizens may apply as a degree or non-degree seeking student.
In a non-degree admissions classification, the student is not regularly admitted to SC State University. The terms of the non-degree admission are limited by semester and/or the maximum number of credits allowable in a particular classification.
To gain admission as a degree seeking candidate, the non-degree classified student must submit a new application as a degree seeking candidate. All academic transcripts of previous work will be required. Admission into degree seeking status will be based on previous academic work and the grades attained as a non-degree student at SC State University.
