Fall Lifelong Learning courses available at WSU

Wichita State will be offering ten new Lifelong Learning courses for senior citizens this fall. Classes will be offered both in-person and online, making the courses available and accessible to senior citizens statewide.

All in-person classes will be held at Wichita State University’s Metropolitan Complex located at 5015 E. 29th St. N., Wichita, KS 67220. No Lifelong Learning classes will be held at senior centers or retirement communities this semester. In-person registrations will be accepted on a first come basis.

Students who select the online option will receive a link via email each week to view the class on their own devices. Students can watch the recorded course at their convenience.

Residents and members of the community 60 years of age or older can audit these courses without paying tuition.  WSU has scholarship money available to cover course fees for students enrolling before Sept. 8. After Sept. 8, some course fees may apply. Although geared toward the senior citizen population, anyone less than 60 can enroll in the courses if they pay regular tuition and fees.
