Lifelong learning

** About Lifelong learning

There are two types of lifelong learning (also called continuing education) opportunities for seniors: you can pay discounted tuition fees and join younger students in regular credit or non-credit courses, or else mingle with other retirees in non-credit, mostly daytime, senior-specific programs. Courses are listed here if the cost per session is $30 or less.
