The Go-60 Program provides tuition-free enrollment in all credit courses. Go-60 students are exempt from fees and charges for course add/drop actions. All Go-60 students may be required to pay the current non-refundable computer fee assessed to all students to help offset computerized record keeping costs. The technology fee is $86 for fewer than 5 credits, $189 for 5 to fewer than 9 credits, and $252 for 9 or more credits. The student fee is $73 for fewer than 5 credits, $177 for 5 to fewer than 9 credits, and $236 for 9 or more credits.

Enrolling in Credit Courses
Go-60 students may enroll in day or evening courses. Students enrolling for the first time will need to complete a Non-degree Student Credit Enrollment Data form.

Students will enroll in courses by accessing their LionPATH student page and completing any to-do items or holds listed.

Go-60 students admitted into a degree program or currently enrolled in one will no longer be eligible for the tuition waiver as per University Park Senate Policy 14-10.
