If you are 60 years of age or older, you might be eligible to attend Penn State Behrend tuition-free through Penn State's GO-60 program.
To qualify for participation in the GO-60 program, you must be 60 years of age or older at the time of enrollment; be a Pennsylvania resident living in the northwestern Pennsylvania counties of Erie, Crawford, Warren, or Venango; and be retired or employed twenty hours or less.
GO-60 participants are enrolled as non-degree students and can take a maximum of six credits per term as an audit; participants do not receive a grade for any enrolled course. No degrees or certificates can be earned as a GO-60 participant. GO-60 class enrollment is on a space-available basis and will occur the last business day prior to the start of a term. Participants must meet any course prerequisites and follow procedures applicable to all students. No graduate-level courses or non-credit courses can be taken by GO-60 participants. Any exceptions must be cleared through the Office of Adult Learner Services.
Although students who meet the above guidelines can take undergraduate courses tuition-free, students will be responsible for textbooks and other specific costs associated with the course.
