Senior Auditors


Due to campus restrictions related to coronavirus, Senior Auditor program enrollment will be deferred to the spring 2022 semester.

The College of Liberal and Professional Studies (LPS) is committed to providing inspiring educational experiences to intellectual explorers of many ages, interests, and backgrounds. We’re honored to invite lifelong learners to share in the exciting academic atmosphere at the University of Pennsylvania through our Senior Auditing Program.

The Senior Auditing Program allows learners aged 65 and older to audit undergraduate lecture classes at Penn's School of Arts and Sciences. We offer a diverse array of courses each semester in a variety of disciplines. Visit our Senior Auditing course listings to find which courses are available to you.

LPS is happy to invite Senior Auditor Program students back to campus classrooms in fall 2021. Per University guidelines, all students enrolling in on-campus courses must be fully vaccinated. Read more about the fall semester updates at Penn's Coronavirus website
