Steps to Participate

Students in ClassIn order to participate in Program 60, you must have resided in the State of Ohio for one calendar year and be age 60 or older during the term for which you register and enroll.

You may take undergraduate, graduate-level and distance learning (online) courses on an instructor permission, space-available, audit basis during the spring, summer and fall terms. The courses you take are tuition free, do not count for credit and cannot count towards a future degree. Some courses may require you to pay applicable course or lab fees (as outlined in Step 7) and may suggest you purchase a textbook.

The following steps will help you become a Program 60 participant!
