Seniors 65 and Older Can Audit Thomas University classes for free

| July 22, 2014

school-notebookTHOMASVILLE, GA – Thomas University recently lowered the age at which members of the community can audit classes for free. Now seniors 65 and older can audit classes without paying an audit fee. The fee for all others to audit classes is $100 per credit.

“Life-long learners have the advantage of having Thomas University in the community with a variety of courses in the arts, sciences, and professional fields,” said Dr. Ann Landis, Executive Vice President and Provost. “Diverse students of all ages make classes that much more interesting because they bring different life experiences and perspectives.”

Auditing a course allows a person to take the class without receiving a grade or credit for that course. While there is no matriculation fee for those 65 and older, a $75 technology fee still applies. This fee provides auditors with access to the TU Library computer labs and online learning resources.

Some of the classes available for auditing include Introduction to Studio Art (drawing/painting/ceramics), Shakespeare, Survey of Early American Literature, Graphic Art/Website Design, Digital Photography, Spanish 101, Survey of Western and Non-Western Culture (art, music, literature, philosophy and religion Common Era through the Middle Ages), History of 20th Century America, History of Contemporary Latin America, Overview of American Politics, Congress, Current Issues in Life Science, Contemporary Ethical Issues in Business, Theories of Personal Relationships, and Cultural Anthropology.

“We want learners of any age to feel welcomed at TU, and we hope that lowering the age for auditing students to attend classes for free will help to send that message,” Landis said.
