Senior Scholars Program at Longevity Center
UCLA Senior Scholars Membership is a program that provides older adults (50+) with an opportunity to connect with UCLA’s academic community. Membership benefits include auditing privileges to sit in UCLA undergraduate courses in various subject areas, as well as exclusive access to Senior Scholar’s networking events.
Scholars who opt to audit courses (pending space availability and approval from instructors) will be able to attend lectures and follow along with class readings. However, scholars do not take exams, write papers, turn in homework assignments or attend discussion sections/labs. Since scholars do not receive a grade or academic credit, these auditing activities will not result in UCLA student records including transcripts.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT ONLINE INSTRUCTION
Summer Sessions A and C 2020 and Fall Quarter 2020 will be held exclusively online in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on the UCLA campus. Senior Scholars are still welcome to audit online courses and will be provided with materials and training to make the transition to online instruction easy and accessible. Please contact the Senior Scholars coordinator if you would like more information: firstname.lastname@example.org, (310) 794-0679.
Membership fees are due quarterly. While all members will have access to Senior Scholar’s networking events, the level of auditing privileges will vary as follows:
$175 Membership Tier A Auditing privileges for up to 1 course *Includes a $25 non-refundable administrative fee
$325 Membership Tier B Auditing privileges for up to 2 courses *Includes a $50 non-refundable administrative fee
