There is a $5 registration fee per person for the semester, and a $2 fee per class. Some classes have additional costs or supplies needed.


Persons attending fall enrollment are reminded to bring their mailing labels to use on the enrollment form and sign-up sheets. This saves writing their name multiple times and speeds up the enrollment process.

The Golden Tigers are also offering a Driver Safety Class from 1-5 p.m. September 13-14. The class will be held at the Webb-Brown Academic Center Room 207. Ron Upton will serve as the instructor for the class. The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members.


The Driver Safety program is an 8-hour classroom refresher course. Individuals must attend both sessions to receive a certificate. Insurance companies in Kansas give a discount to seniors on their car insurance upon class completion.
