1. University of Alaska
Not everyone wants to retire to Florida. Those who prefer spending their post-career years in a colder climate might want to consider the Last Frontier State.
At the University of Alaska, which comprises three universities on a system of campuses across the state, residents who are eligible for full Social Security retirement benefits — those who have reached what is technically known as “full retirement age” — are entitled to free tuition.
You must submit a tuition waiver request form before tuition payments can be made. The waiver is valid for “regular tuition,” which the school defines as “the base institutional charge for enrollment in a course offered for credit at the university.”
Earning college credit has never been cooler.
