Herkimer College offers New York State residents aged 60 and older the opportunity to audit courses offered at the College, tuition-free, through the Senior Adult Audit program.
“The Senior Audit allows eligible participants access to courses that are of interest to them and to engage in a scholarly, diverse, and multi-generational learning environment without the pressure of tuition, deadlines, or graded evaluations,” states Herkimer College President Cathleen C. McColgin, Ph.D. “This program is wonderful because it allows seniors to take part in college courses for the pure joy and personal enrichment of learning.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for older adults to engage in the learning process while being able to interact with younger students,” Herkimer County Office for the Aging Director Kathy Fox said.

Senior adults who audit college courses are not awarded credit for those courses, and no academic transcript is provided. Some non-tuition fees and/or course materials costs may apply; Senior Adult Audit requests can only be approved if there is space available in the class.
