Senior Citizen Audit Program
The Senior Citizen Audit Program was created by the Rutgers University Board of Governors to permit retired New Jersey residents, age 62 or older, to attend courses on a space-available, noncredit basis. There are no tuition costs for auditing courses. Courses listed as “closed” in the online Schedule of Classes—those that have reached maximum capacity—are not open to auditors. Auditing is a courtesy offered at the discretion of the professor.
Courses are available on all three regional campuses. For more information on the Senior Citizen Audit Program, call 732-932-7823, ext. 682 or visit the program website.
