Senior (60+) Auditor Registration

Thank you for your interest in SUNY Orange and the Senior (60+) Audit program. We are so excited to welcome you to SUNY Orange for the upcoming semester!


SUNY Orange permits individuals 60 years of age or older to audit credit courses on a space available basis without payment of tuition according to NY State Law Article 126, Section 6303. Full classroom participation is encouraged; no grades are given nor is credit earned.   Senior (60+) auditors are eligible to register for credit courses (excluding Nursing, other Health Professions courses, Private Music Instruction, PTECH, Honors Seminars and other lab intensive courses) with seats available at the end of the add/drop period.  If registering for an online or hybrid course, you will need your own personal computer or laptop and reliable access to the internet.   Senior Auditors pay no fees, are not eligible to borrow college equipment, and do not participate in student clubs/activities. 

Senior Auditors must adhere to the Student Code of Conduct.

As per College Policy, Senior Auditing students will be registered after the add/drop period in order to ensure degree seeking students are able to register for the classes that are required for graduation.
