Program 60

Continuing to Learn... for a Lifetime

If you are an Ohio citizen age 60 or over, a unique opportunity awaits you at The Ohio State University. Program 60 is a legislatively mandated program for Ohio residents who are at least 60 years of age. It enables qualified individuals to attend courses ON A SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS. Enjoy the experience of learning just for fun - participants do not pay tuition, they will not appear on a class roster; and they will not receive college credit. Program 60 provides an excellent opportunity for you to remain engaged in intellectual activity with people of all ages. Your life experiences will add much to classroom discussions.

Accounting to Zoology

You may enroll in areas ranging from accounting or art history to philosophy, psychology or zoology. Most lecture courses are open to Program 60 participants. In history, for example, there are classes on Western and Eastern Civilizations, the Americas, the ancient Mediterranean, medieval history, and other areas as well. Political science and sociology will help you to see your society and government in a new light. See Course Schedules

Learning for Fun

There are no required assignments and you are not required to purchase books and supplies. You do not take exams or write papers unless you would like to do so. Program 60 students are encouraged to participate in class discussions.
