Senior Citizen Audit Program

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey provides senior citizens with opportunities in higher education.

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.

Choosing a Course

  • Only courses offered during the spring and fall semesters at Rutgers University–Camden, Rutgers University–New Brunswick, or Rutgers University–Newark are open to auditors. No other courses offered at the university are available under the Senior Citizen Audit Program, including courses offered during other terms.
  • Online courses are not included under our program.
