The Senior Citizen Visitor Pass


The Senior Citizen Visitor Pass allows seniors to “visit” courses that are offered at Windward Community College (WCC) free of charge if seats are available (class is not closed). Visitors are exempt from tuition/student fees payment (course fees may apply), no credit is awarded, no name will appear on the instructor’s class roster via MyUH, and no permanent academic records are retained in the Admissions and Records office. If a senior citizen wishes to enroll in courses to receive credit, he/she is required to follow the same procedure and deadline as other students. Once this Senior Citizen Visitor Pass is issued, the senior citizen visitor cannot request credit for the visited class(es). Senior citizen visitor status does not provide an active UH student account, access to MyUH, Laulima, or full library privileges.

The following are qualifications for a Hawaii Senior Citizen Visitor Pass:

  • bona fide resident of the status of Hawai‘i resident for tuition purposes (may require residency documentation)
