Sixty Plus Program: Auditing Classes at Miami

Ohio law provides an opportunity for persons sixty years of age or older who have resided in Ohio for at least one year to attend classes without paying tuition or admission fees, provided the attendance is on an audit basis, is in courses where classroom space is available, and is approved by the instructor. Fees such as lab fees and books are the responsibility of the student.

Restrictions: Workshop courses are not available for auditing. Some graduate level courses have program course restrictions that may apply.

The Continuing Education office processes registration requests for any course offered on the Oxford campus. See information below for the process to register on the Regional Campuses.
