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.
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:
$150 Membership Tier A Auditing privileges for up to 1 course *Includes a $25 non-refundable administrative fee
$275 Membership Tier B Auditing privileges for up to 2 courses *Includes a $50 non-refundable administrative fee
$400 Membership Tier C Auditing privileges for up to 3 courses *Includes a $75 non-refundable administrative fee
$525 Membership Tier D Auditing privileges for up to 4 courses *Includes a $100 non-refundable administrative fee
