Senior Programs

Community colleges are a great place for learning at all ages, both for career development and personal enrichment. Whether to advance a career, acquire new skills, or to learn for the fun of it and connect with others, adults over age 55 can stay engaged at Eastern Gateway.

EGCC’s lifelong learning programs for older adults are short-term, non-credit courses that promote creativity, entrepreneurship, and personal development. Courses include computer skills, crafts and hobbies, wellness, foreign language and personal finance.

Senior Focus Classes

Ohio residents 60 years and older can take these and other non-credit classes at low or no cost with EGCC’s tuition waiver. Ohio seniors pay only instructional fees when applicable.

Thursday Get-Togethers
These free presentations on a variety of topics feature entertaining speakers, refreshments, and an opportunity to socialize with friends and meet new ones.

Adult/Senior Education Advisory Committee
The advisory group meets monthly to brainstorm ideas for classes, speakers, and other activities. New members are always welcome.
