Senior citizens who wish to take courses for credit must apply through the Admissions Office.
Senior citizens who wish to audit a course must complete and submit the Audit Application / Registration form, along with a $60 application fee, to the Office of the Registrar.
The $60 application fee is waived for UNC Wilmington graduates. Senior Citizens, who have been away from the university for at least two (2) consecutive semesters, will need to pay the $60 application fee. UNC Wilmington faculty and staff may check with Human Resources to see if you are eligible for the Application Fee Benefit.
If you register for more than four (4) credit hours, you will need to comply with the immunization requirements under North Carolina state law. Please contact Student Health Services at (910) 962-3280 for more information.
Main Campus vs. Extension Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees are charged according to campus of the course (main campus or extension) and not student classification. When using the SeaNet registration system, please keep in mind that Extension courses are courses with section numbers 800 or higher and a campus of "EXT." Only these sections of courses are billed at the Extension tuition rates which are calculated on a per credit hour basis. All other section numbers are considered on-campus courses and are billed as such. Tuition and fee rates for both on campus and Extension courses can be found on the Student Accounts website. Ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to be aware of these differences and the impact they have on tuition charges.
