WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita State University plans this fall to stop allowing Kansas residents 60 and older to audit its classes for free.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the university sent a letter this month to people who’ve previously audited its classes to notify them of the fees. Interim Executive Vice President and Provost Shirley Lefever said the new fees will help cover instructional costs. The new fees range from $7.75 a credit hour for liberal arts courses to $68 a credit hour for business courses. Most courses are three credit hours.
The move comes with the university planning to keep tuition flat for the upcoming school year.
