California State University Channel Islands offers a program which allows California residents, sixty (60) years of age or older, to enroll regular session undergraduate level courses without payment of certain specified fees.  All regular admission requirements must be met.  The program is required to adhere to the following standards:

  • Persons enrolling in the program will be able to register using the myCI on-line registration system.  However, because students in this program pay a reduced fee, their registration will occur after all other student groups. 
  • The reduction of fees does not include books, parking, or lab/supplies fees, or any other fee not specified in the waiver program. 
  • The Over 60 program fee waiver does not apply to 2nd Bachelors Degree, Extended University courses, Open University courses, Credential programs or Graduate programs. 
  • California residents turning sixty (60) years of age during a semester that is already in session will not be eligible until the beginning of the following semester.
