Over 60 Program
Notice to Students who wish to apply to the San Jose State Over Sixty Fee Waiver Program:
San Jose State is facing another year of deep reductions in state funding. Three consecutive years of cuts have forced the campus to make very difficult decisions at all levels of the university.
One result of the continued reductions in state funding is that San Jose State has more demand from students to enroll than it is able to accommodate with classes and services. As a consequence, San Jose State reluctantly must discontinue the Over Sixty Fee Waiver Program as one of the cost-saving measures needed to address higher student demand and lack of funding.
Effective immediately, the University is discontinuing acceptance of new applications into the Over Sixty Fee Waiver Program. Students who would have been eligible to enroll through the Over Sixty Fee Waiver Program will now be charged the same tuition and fees as all other matriculated students. If you require assistance to help meet your educational costs, visit the Financial Aid Office website at www.sjsu.edu/faso for information and application process.
As a new student paying full tuition and fees, you will be assigned a priority registration appointment based on your class level that is consistent with priority registrations for the general student body.
Students who are current participants in the Over Sixty Waiver Program will receive a notification from the University about options that may allow them to continue their enrollment at San Jose State.
The Over 60 Taxpayer's Benefit Program allows enrollment of persons 60 years of age or older without payment of the admission application fee and most registration fees. Admission is based on a space available basis and all campus impaction restrictions are in effect for every applicant. SJSU no longer accepts applications for lower division transfers (less than 60 units) and second baccalaureate students. Over 60 participants must be eligible to be a matriculated student at SJSU and must be degree-seeking. For students deemed to be failing to make progress toward a degree, class registration will be put on hold and the student will be dismissed from the program. The program is not available for Special Session or Open University students. Apply online at www.csumentor.edu.
Students admitted to the program begin registration on the first day of classes and must complete their registration by the add deadline. After you have registered for classes, go to the Bursar's Office located in the Student Services Center and complete the form to have your fees adjusted. All late enrollment fees apply after the add deadline
