It is the Silver Jubilee (25 years) of the Concordia University seniors non-credit program. Those of you who are 55 and older are allowed to sit in on some of the regular undergraduate courses (mostly in the Faculty of Arts and Science) for only $26 a semester (regular cost would be $200 or more). Seniors of course do not rack up college credits but you don’t do assignments either or take the exams. You just have the pleasure of learning. Registration for Fall courses will be on-going until September 18th. However, unfortunately, there will be a $25 late registration fee added after midnight, September 3rd. They will be admitting new students again in November for Winter classes.
