Senior Citizen Program

The Senior Citizen Program was established by the Hawaiʻi state legislature and is currently administered at Kapiʻolani Community College (Kapiʻolani CC) through the Office of College and Community Relations. The guidelines to this Senior Program are as follows:

  • To qualify for this Program, individuals must be Hawaiʻi state residents and at least sixty years of age. Proof of state residency and age are required.
  • Effective Fall 2017, every senior must provide evidence of TB (tuberculosis) clearance before attending classes. The TB clearance must be less than one year old, effective the first day of the semester. Kapiʻolani CC accepts only the Mantoux Test (PPD) or report of a negative chest x-ray completed by a physician/clinic in the United States. Submit your TB clearance with your Senior Citizen Registration form.
  • Individuals may enroll into credit classes as an auditor (i.e. a person who attends a class but earns no academic credit) on a space-available basis.
  • Under this Program, an individual may take a maximum of two courses per semester, or six credits.
  • Registration into courses must first be approved by the faculty member teaching the course.
  • Individuals should not register through the registration procedures developed for credit classes and must therefore register directly through the Office of College and Community Relations.
  • Individuals registered under this Program are not charged tuition, but some fees might apply.
  • Individuals registered under this Program do not receive academic credit, are not listed on official class lists, and do not receive a letter grade upon completion of the course.
  • The Senior Program is only available during the Fall and Spring semesters.
  • Some classes are not open to the Senior Program.
  • In selecting courses, seniors are asked to refer to the Class Schedule posted on the following website:
  • All registration requests must be signed, approved and received by the Office of College and Community Relations by the first day of instruction.
  • Senior Program participants are considered students and must follow the University of Hawaiʻi (UH) student code of conduct. If applicable, holds must be cleared on all UH accounts before registration.
