Lake Superior College shall charge an administrative fee of $20.00 per credit (plus any fees, special course fees and/or tuition differential) in lieu of tuition to senior citizens pursuant to Minnesota Statutes §135A.51 and Minnesota Statutes §135A.52.

Who qualifies?

As defined in Minnesota Statutes §135A.51, a senior citizen is a legal resident of Minnesota who has reached 62 years of age before the beginning of any term in which a course of study is pursued, or a person receiving a railroad retirement annuity who has reached 60 years of age before the beginning of the term.

In order to be eligible for the senior rate, you must delay registration until the first day of the semester or course as this rate is available on a space available basis.

Note: If you pre-register to hold a seat in the class, you will be unable to obtain the senior rate.


After you have registered for your course(s) on the first day of the term, please contact the Registrar to have the senior rate applied to your account.  This must be done each term to ensure the appropriate rate is applied to your account. If this is your first time registering for the senior rate, please be prepared to provide proper identification including date of birth such as a MN driver’s license.
