Senior citizens welcome to audit Schreiner courses

Mortimer Adler said, “The purpose of learning is growth and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as we live.”

Schreiner University also believes that learning has no age limit, and offered 14 fall 2007 courses that area individuals 55 and older could audit for a nominal fee. (The list of classes available for audit changes each semester.) Classes are open first to regularly enrolled Schreiner students, then to auditors on a space-available basis. Class size is restricted to maintain Schreiner’s 13:1 student-teacher ratio. Auditors do not get class credit, but will receive a certificate of completion from the instructor.

Bill Thomas, who has audited a number of Schreiner classes, has been very pleased with his experiences.

“After 50 years, I finally learned how to go to school. You get a world-class education and you go to class when you want to, don't have to take the tests and don't have to write the papers. We're planning on taking more classes in the fall.”

The application fee is $25 (nonrefundable) and courses are $25 per semester hour. The deadline for applying to audit courses in spring 2008 is December 1.

To be admitted to Schreiner as an auditor and for more information about the program, go to and look under the Non-Degree Admission at the bottom of the page, or call admissions at (830) 792-7217.
