Tuition Waivers

Auditing Classes

The cost of tuition for auditing a class is the same as registering for credit.

Unemployment Person Tuition Waiver

Sussex County residents who have received tuition waivers may register two business days before the start of the semester. Students are required to file a "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA). The student must register with One-Stop Career Center before registration.

All approved tuition waivers must be processed for space availability through the appropriate Registrar and Bursar's Office at SCCC. UPP covers General Fee and Tuition. However, the student is responsible for remaining fees at the time of registration.

A student cannot register in advance ("save a seat") and then submit the tuition waiver two days prior to the start of classes. The tuition waiver will not be applied retroactively.

For more information, please contact the Advising and Counseling Center.

Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver

Sussex County residents, 65 years and older, are entitled to free tuition and fees for eligible college-level courses. 

These conditions apply:

  1. the class must be eligible for the senior citizen free tuition (some labs, trade and field experience courses will not be eligible);
  2. paid enrollment warrants the course being conducted;
  3. there must be sufficient space available in the class; and
  4. registration for the course must occur only during the final two business days before the start of the semester. Applicants who opt to register earlier are not eligible for free tuition. Applicants may take the course for college credit or may choose to audit the course.

Applicants must register in person during the specified registration time and present proof of eligibility
