Senior Citizen Waiver

Free Classes for Senior Citizens at HCC
Students who are 60 years of age or older and have resided in the state of Florida for 12 consecutive months prior to the first day of class are eligible for the fee waiver program to audit without paying registration, application or related fees, provided that conditions stated are met. Tuition waivers are also available at all HCC campuses. Seniors audit the classes and do not receive credit as a part of the tuition waiver.
