Senior Citizens Audit Policy

Babson alumni who are 65 years or older (proof of age required) OR Needham or Wellesley senior citizens who are 65 years or older (proof of age and residency required) have the opportunity to audit one course per semester at Babson College at no cost.

The course offerings and course information can be accessed through the Course Listing.

Registration under the senior citizen audit policy opens on the first day of classes for the semester. Space must be available in the course. A maximum of two senior citizens may audit the same course at the same time. Please bring the Senior Citizen Application and Registration Form along with proof of residency, if applicable, and proof of age to the Registrar’s Office in Hollister Hall. Registration must be completed by the last day of add/drop, which is typically six days after classes begin. The add/drop deadline is listed in the Academic Calendar. A Babson network account will be created and sent by email to the personal email address listed on the form. The Babson network account must be activated in order to access the course information located on the Blackboard e-learning site.

No credit will be issued for any courses taken through the senior citizen audit policy and a final grade of AU (Audit) will be given. Dropping or withdrawing from a course must be completed either in-person or by emailing the Registrar's Office by the deadlines listed in the Academic Calendar.
