Lifelong Learner Program
Lifelong Learning status affords an opportunity for individuals to enroll in a few courses of specific interest to them without completing the regular application.

- You must be 21 or older.
- Lifelong Learning students are not eligible for financial aid, scholarships or institutional grants (except for senior citizens).
- Senior citizens (age 65+) are eligible for a scholarship that covers tuition.
- Students entering as Lifelong Learners may take the courses offered for credit, or they may audit the course.
- Individuals may not continue to enroll as a Lifelong Learner, after earning 21 semester hours of academic credits without special permission from the Provost.
- After completing 21 hours of classes for academic credit, students may be required to apply through the regular university admissions process.
- Classes taken not for credit (auditing) can not be applied to degree programs nor to the Executive Certificate Programs.
