Golden ID Program

The IAA participates in the University of Maryland's Golden Identification Card program, which allows eligible senior citizens to take advantage of course offerings.

To be eligible for participation the individual must:

  • be 60 years of age or older
  • be a legal resident of Maryland
  • be retired (not engaged in gainful employment for more than 20 hours per week)

Through the Golden ID program, tuition is waived; students are charged part-time undergraduate student fees, less the health, student activities, and athletic fees. Please see the Student Financial Services and Cashiering for the exact amount.

Students in the program may register on a space-available basis for a maximum of three courses during the first week of classes. They must meet all course prerequisite and co-requisite requirements.

Golden ID students also have the opportunity to become involved with the Golden ID Student Association which provides cultural and social events, course recommendations, and peer advising.
