I just received this email from Rutgers University and wanted to share with seniors in the community who might be interested in this free learning opportunity offered by Rutgers:
“Rutgers University Senior Citizen Audit Program
This special program was created by the Rutgers University Board of Governors to permit retired New Jersey residents, age 62 or older, to attend courses on a space-available, noncredit basis. There are no tuition costs for auditing courses.
Here are details about the program:
Only courses offered during the spring and fall semesters on the Camden, Newark, or New Brunswick campuses are open to auditors. No other courses offered at the university are available under the Senior Citizen Audit Program, including courses offered during other terms.
Courses listed as closed in the online Schedule of Classes at http://soc.ess.rutgers.edu/soc —those that have reached maximum capacity—are not open to auditors.
Auditing is a courtesy offered at the discretion of the professor. If the professor informs you that auditors are not permitted, please select another course.
Auditors must wait until the first day of class to have a professor approve and sign the Permission to Audit form for the appropriate semester.
Auditors are passive participants. Please wait for the professor’s invitation to participate. Registered, matriculated students are always given priority for the professor’s time.
Your name will not appear on the professor’s roster. Your status is that of a nonregistered auditor.
Please go to the web site and select the campus nearest your location and download the Camden, New Brunswick, or Newark Senior Citizen Auditor Packet.

Spring classes begin January 19, 2010. The academic calendar can be downloaded from http://scheduling.rutgers.edu/academic.htm
