Ridgewater College offers several options for senior citizens to continue their education, from course auditing to credit courses and non-credit courses.
A senior citizen who wishes to take a class, but not receive credit, may audit a credit-based course at no charge. Students wishing to audit a class must declare this at the time of registration. Students auditing courses must pay a mandatory parking and statewide student association fee. They are also responsible for purchasing books and class materials.
Minnesota residents 62 years old or older may enroll in credit courses on a space-available basis without paying tuition and activity fees. The senior citizen rate applies only to students who are not collecting financial aid. Those choosing to enroll will be charged $20 per credit plus fees.

Senior citizens may also enroll in non-credit courses without paying tuition and activity fees (excluding courses designed and offered specifically and exclusively for senior citizens). A senior citizen enrolled in a non-credit course must pay for any materials, personal property, or service charges for the course.
Note that a senior citizen enrolled in closed enrollment contract training or a professional continuing education program is not eligible for these benefits.
