Most states offer free college for seniors! Some even pick up the “fees.” Some states just offer reduced rates — you might complain to your state legislators about how bad your state looks compared to others. In Part 1, Arizona was the anti-senior cheapskate. In Part 2, it was Indiana. No cheapskates in Parts 3 or 4. In this final part, we find four states that are offering seniors substantially less than other states: Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia.
You typically cannot enroll in classes until the last minute because spaces for seniors are available only for classes that are not completely filled with paying customers.
Please note that if a PUBLIC college or community college near you does not show up in these listings, it doesn’t mean they don’t offer these programs. In fact, there’s a good chance they do. Call their admissions and find out!
