62+ Program

The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia provides for the admission and registration of persons 62 years of age or older. Individuals in this category are eligible to register for classes on a space-available basis without payment of tuition and mandatory fees.

62+ Program Steps:

  • Apply: Prospective students for 62+ program will first need to apply to either an undergraduate or graduate program through Undergraduate Admissions or Graduate Admissions. The semester application deadlines will be listed on each website. Individuals who already possess a graduate level or doctoral degree and wish to take courses for audit/non-credit are encouraged to apply through Graduate Admissions as a Non-Degree seeking student.

  • Admittance: Once admitted, a copy of a valid driver’s license or other comparable, official documentation of age needs to be emailed to reghelp@uga.edu. This is required in order to waive tuition and fees and will only need to be submitted once. The waiver will continue as long as the student remains active at UGA.

  • Registration: The schedule of classes can be found on the Office of the Registrar website and lists what courses are offered each semester at UGA.
