Senior Learning Passport Program

The Senior Learning Passport Program is available to individuals who are at least 65 years of age. Senior learners may attend and "sit-in" on undergraduate courses (courses numbered 100 - 499) on a space available basis and with the instructor's permission. Online courses are not available for Passport Learners. Course offering information is available online at Search for Classes.

The Learning Passport may be used for up to two classes per semester and is valid for one year from the date of the non-refundable $25 fee payment.

Senior Passport Program Guidelines:

  • Non-refundable fee for this program is $25 per year and covers a maximum of 2 classes per semester.
  • Limited to undergraduate classes on a space available basis.
  • Citizens 65 years of age and over are eligible.
  • Instructor permission is required for all classes.
  • Not eligible to take online classes or receive any UNL services.
  • Individuals who would like to have access to campus technology, including Canvas and other digital tools or services that may be used in the course that requires a user to log in, must either audit or enroll in courses.
  • The passport learner is intended to be a passive learner. Any active participation is at the discretion of the instructor and the instructor may terminate participation of a learner for any reason.
