62 Years Old, or Older

  • Pursuant to the provisions of the Georgia Constitution, the University System established the following rules with respect to enrollment of persons 62 years of age or older. Enrollment criteria:

    • Must be a resident of Georgia, 62 years of age or older at the time of registration, and present a birth certificate or other comparable written documentation of age to enable the institution to determine eligibility.

    • Enroll as a regular or auditing student in courses offered for resident credit on a “space available” basis without payment of fees, except for supplies, laboratory or shop fees.

    • Satisfy all System and institution admission requirements; however, institutions may exercise discretion in exceptional cases where circumstances indicate that certain requirements such as high school graduation and minimum test scores are inappropriate. In those instances involving discretionary admission, institutions will provide diagnostic methods to determine whether participation in Learning Support will be required prior to enrollment in regular credit courses. Reasonable prerequisites may be required in certain courses.

    • Have all usual student and institutional records maintained.

    • Satisfy all System, institution, and legislated degree requirements, if they are degree-seeking students.
