Senior citizens welcome to audit Schreiner courses

Alexandre Dumas once wrote, “One’s work may be finished someday, but one’s education never.” Schreiner University also believes that learning has no age limit, and offers an opportunity for individuals 55 and older to audit college-level courses for a nominal fee. Classes are open first to regularly enrolled Schreiner students, then to auditors on a space-available basis. Class size is restricted to maintain Schreiner’s 13:1 student-teacher ratio. Auditors do not get class credit. Classes in areas such as music, English literature, history, political science, psychology, religion, Spanish literature and theatre history are expected to be available for auditors during the 2009-10 academic year.

The application fee is $25 (nonrefundable) and courses are $25 per credit hour. Those who plan to audit Schreiner courses must apply by the August 1 deadline.

There will be two information sessions for potential auditors: at 1 p.m., Tuesday, June 30 and 5:30 p.m., Thursday July 9, in the Elaine B. Griffin Welcome Center on the Schreiner campus.

To apply to Schreiner as an auditor, go to and look under the Non-Degree Admission at the bottom of the page, or call the Office of Admission at 830-792-7217.
