Spring into something new!

To celebrate a lively spring term, Oregon Coast Community College is making it easier than ever before for local residents aged 65 and above to take engaging college courses … with free tuition!

Discover the joys of yoga, dive in to a new art class, take a Spanish class, explore Oregon History – or choose from one of many other courses.

The OCCC senior waiver applies to anyone 65 or better who wants to take a class without receiving a grade or credit.  This 100% tuition waiver does not cover lab fees, books, or other class fees.  Some classes fill up early, so space is not guaranteed.

To use the waiver, simply stop by the Newport or Lincoln City OCCC location during business hours between now and the start of the term – Monday, April 1.

Or, find the class you’d like to take on the course schedule at oregoncoastcc.org, but don’t register yet. Print out the senior waiver form from the College website, oregoncoastcc.org/seniorwaiver, and bring it to the instructor on the first day of class. Your instructor will sign the form, which you can then return to Student Services in Newport or Lincoln City.  After the waiver has been applied to your account, you will be instructed how to easily pay any fees not covered by the waiver.

Oregon Coast Community College’s Central County Campus is located at 400 SE College Way in Newport’s South Beach district. The OCCC North County Center is at 3788 SE High School Drive in Lincoln City.
