Senior Waiver

It's never too late to learn something new! Are you a Massachusetts resident age 60 years or older with an interest in taking college classes? The Senior Waiver program offers an opportunity for you to explore your interests and develop your talents.


Massachusetts residents age 60 years or older may take credit classes at HCC on a space-available basis through HCC's Senior Waiver program. Eligible seniors must register during the two weeks prior to the start of classes and pay a non-refundable fee of $50 per semester, regardless of the number of credits taken. Those electing to use the waiver must enroll through the Advising Center. Registrations will not be accepted after the end of Add/Drop week (see the college Academic Calendar for dates).

Location and Hours

The Advising Center is located in FR273 (Frost building, room 273). Check here for hours.

Transportation and Parking

Transportation to HCC is available via PVTA buses. Parking is available in student lots.

Interested persons must apply to the college. Apply online or visit our Admissions office.
