It's never too late to learn

Posted By on Tue, Aug 12, 2008 at 8:23 AM

The University of Arkansas sent around a news release today about free tuition in credit courses for people 60 and older. The elderly may earn degrees tuition free.

I presume it is legal to discriminate in tuition fees on the basis of age.

UA NEWS RELEASE

It is never too late to join the Razorback family. Senior citizens are welcome on the University of Arkansas campus. In fact, they’re so welcome that they may attend courses and earn degrees tuition free.

Arkansas residents who are 60 years of age or older are encouraged to enroll in credit courses, tuition free, on a space-available basis. College courses engage older learners in challenging and intellectually stimulating programs, and senior Razorbacks lend wisdom and experience to traditional students in an academic environment.

Senior citizens wishing to participate in the program will need to provide age verification, complete the Senior Citizen Tuition and Fee Waiver form, and apply for admission prior to the senior citizen registration period, which begins Friday, Aug. 22.

For more details about becoming a senior Razorback, call the Office of Admissions at 1-800-377-UofA.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
