 Schreiner welcomes senior auditors for spring

Schreiner University is committed to learning without limits, so it should come as no surprise that the University ignores age limits and offers individuals 55 and older an opportunity to audit college-level courses for a nominal fee. Classes in areas such as music, English literature, history, political science, Spanish literature and playwriting are expected to be available for auditors during the 2011 spring semester. There will be special seminars available to auditors of IDST 2270, “Women in Contemporary Society: Preparing to Lead the Future." The course, which will be team-taught, will be offered in conjunction with the local chapter of the American Association of University Women and will meet Thursday evenings. There also will be a Wednesday evening creative writing class

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.
The application fee is $25 (nonrefundable) and courses are $25 per credit hour. The deadline for applying to audit classes is Jan. 7, 2011.
There will be information sessions for potential auditors 5:30-6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 30, and Thursday, Jan. 6, in the Elaine B. Griffin Welcome Center on the Schreiner campus.
To apply to Schreiner as an auditor, go to the University website at and look under the Non-Degree Admission at the bottom of the page.
