Through Program 60, Ohio residents age 60 and older may register for regularly scheduled credit and a limited number of noncredit classes on an audit, tuition-free, space-available basis. Register in person at a campus Enrollment Center. Instructions on how to register online are listed below.
Program 60 allows individuals to enroll in noncredit recreation classes, but does not apply to noncredit courses hosted by Corporate College® West, Corporate College East or Workforce Solutions. Call 216-987-6000, option 1 for more information on noncredit courses.
Note: Program 60 does not cover the cost of textbooks or other course materials. Follow these instructions to opt out of the inclusive access program.
All Ohio residents age 60 or older are eligible for Program 60.
To become a Program 60 student, you must complete an application for admission. Applications can be completed in person at any Enrollment Center or online. You will be assigned a student ID number, which you will need when registering. If you have not taken a course at Tri-C within the past three semesters, you will need to reapply to the College.
Program 60 registration period for Summer 2022 courses:
|Full term||Session J (5 weeks)||Session L (8 weeks)||Session K (Second 5-week session)|
|June 2-6||June 2-6||June 16-20||July 7-11|
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, the Enrollment Centers will accept Program 60 registrations via an Enrollment Center mailbox (see below) in lieu of registering in person. Please email your request on the start date of Program 60 registration to the campus where you typically attend classes. Reminder, you must have an active application on file in order for Tri-C to process your registration. Your email request should include: your name, S#, course name with CRN and a phone number should we need to contact you. We will confirm your registration via email.
Program 60 registration is on an “audit” basis only. Audit courses do not receive college credit or count toward a degree. To earn college credit, you must register as a degree-seeking student and pay tuition.
Program 60 students must meet all prerequisites for credit courses. Documentation in the form of college transcripts may be required to confirm.
Printed schedule booklets are no longer available; however, course offerings can be viewed online. Go to tri-c.edu/programs and click “Search for Available Courses.” Choose your desired term, then click “Submit.”
Follow the bullet points to search for specific classes. You can view all classes within a subject area by clicking “Subject” and then “Class Search.” You can also filter your choices by campus or instructor.
To ensure that degree-seeking students are able to register for courses they need to graduate, Program 60 course registration occurs only on specific dates. Refer to the Enrollment Guide to view Program 60 registration start and end dates for each session.
Due to limited availability, you may not register as a degree-seeking student and then change or reregister as a Program 60 student.
