Description

Senior citizens; reduced tuition for attendance at public institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth. Permits a senior citizen whose taxable income exceeded $15,000 in the year preceding the year in which enrollment is sought to pay reduced tuition at a rate of 25 percent of the total cost for enrollment in courses as a full-time or part-time student for academic credit at a public institution of higher education in the Commonwealth if total student enrollment for the course or courses in which the senior citizen seeks enrollment has not reached 75 percent of the maximum course capacity as of the first day of the academic term. Current law waives tuition for senior citizens whose taxable income was $15,000 or less in the year preceding the year in which enrollment is sought. Amends § 23-38.56, of the Code of Virginia.
