North Arkansas College offers a Golden Ager waiver of general student fee charges for senior citizens 60 years of age or older in compliance with A.C.A. §6-60-204:

When any person sixty (60) years of age or older is admitted and enrolls as a student in any state-supported institution of higher learning in this state, the Board of Trustees of the institution or other appropriate institutional officials shall waive all the general student fee charges for each student on a space-available basis in existing classes. Fees will be waived only for courses organized to grant credit and recognized by the Department of Higher Education for credit.


Please note that expenses for books and supplies required for courses are additional out-of-pocket costs for students. Students are responsible to purchase required books and supplies via awarded financial aid or personal payments. Books and supplies expenses are separate from tuition and fees, and thus, should not be included with tuition and fee payments. Expenses for books and supplies are estimated to be $300 to $900 per semester, depending on a student’s program of study and course selections.
