When I was an undergraduate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County 
(UMBC), they had the "golden i.d." program.  Local residents 65 and older 
could take degree programs for free, only having to pay student facility 
fees, and so forth.  It was rather interesting, as an 18 year old, to be 
taking course with older students.  I don't know if they still have that 
program -- in-state tuition my freshman year was a whopping $175.00 for a 
full time student.  There was one fellow, originally Dutch, who actually 
completed his undergraduate in "Ancient Studies" when 70 years old.
