Please note that "categorical tuition waivers," for students who are veterans, active members of the armed forces, Native Americans, senior citizens, or clients of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission for the Blind, CANNOT be used for CPE classes, since they apply only to tuition fees of state-supported classes.


*Waivers usually apply to class fees only. Additional fees, such as registration, curriculum or credit recording fees, as well as the balance of class fees not covered by the waiver, are the responsibility of the student.
