House Bill 60 for Seniors
Continuing Education & Community Engagement

You Can Have a Whole Lot of Fun When You're Old Enough!

If you're 62 or older and a resident of Utah, you may audit many regular University classes numbered 1000-4999 for a mere $25 per semester in addition to any special fee attached to the class.

Known as House Bill 60, the program is just the ticket for seniors who want to keep current in their fields they know and love or learn something new.

Class Information

For a list of courses available to HB 60 students, please see the catalog of available classes (PDF file).

Enrollment restrictions include: Writing, Computer Science, AOCE, and upper division business classes. Some departments may restrict registration for individual classes. Enrollment is also restricted in classes that are full. There are a limited number of seats available to HB60 students in ESSF fitness courses.

Other classes for learners age 50 and over - the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Join a dynamic community of adults over 50 years of age who understand that life is enhanced through learning. This membership program offers a rich and evolving array of courses, and instructors who are distinguished emeritus faculty, scholars, and experts from the community.

How Do I Register?

Summer registration begins May 5th and continues through May 20.

Thank you for your interest in House Bill 60. The University of Utah has moved all summer semester courses online. As a result, those interested in registering for courses under HB60 will have to feel comfortable navigating and participating in an online only environment. For more information about how to do this you can visit the University of Utah Teaching and Learning Technologies webpage. https://tlt.utah.edu/services.php#canvas_support

All University buildings are closed and staff are working remotely from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so in-person registration at this time is not possible. To manage HB60 registrations while we work from home we will be making a few changes.

To begin the registration process, please begin by filling out our Online Form. Please note, you will need to include information on the classes you are interested in participating in. This includes: course name, subject area, course number, and section number (eg. Survey of Accounting, ACCTG 2600-090)

After you have completed the form you will be contacted by email with further instructions. This email will include:

  • Notice of whether or not you will need a code to add the courses you have selected (note: you will have to contact the instructor and get this code on your own. Continuing Education will not be able to assist you with this)
  • A time and date where you will call in to register for the classes and make payment over the phone. We will only be accepting credit cards over the phone this semester. No other payment options are available.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these new processes in this new environment. We understand that this is not what you are accustomed to and we all hope to return to taking classes in person as soon as possible.

Online registration is not available at this time.
