Senior Citizen Rates

Resident senior citizens age 60+ who are taking credit courses will be charged 50 percent of in-district Idaho resident tuition. The student is responsible for the full amount of out-of-district fees if it is determined that they are not a resident of Ada, Canyon, Twin Falls, Jerome, Kootenai, or Bonneville Counties or do not have an approved Certificate of Residency form for the current academic year. Out-of-state and foreign senior-citizen students will be charged 50 percent of the out-of-state/international tuition. Fees for noncredit courses, materials, books, or special course fees are full price. Please contact One Stop Student Services to update your tuition rate.

Veterans and Covered Individuals

Section 702 of the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 (“Choice Act”), requires the Veteran’s Administration to disapprove programs of education for payment of benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and Montgomery GI Bill-Active Duty® at public institutions of higher learning if the school charges qualifying Veterans and dependents tuition and fees in excess of the rate for resident students for terms beginning after July 1, 2015.

In support of student veterans and in order for CWI’s currently eligible programs to remain approved for the VA’s GI Bill® programs, CWI will charge in-state tuition to all non-resident students who can prove to the institution that they meet the eligibility criteria set forth under Section 3679(c) of Title 38, United States codes (effective Fall 2015).

Public Law 117-68 Update

Effective August 1, 2022, the Colonel John M. McHugh Tuition Fairness for Survivors Act of 2021 (Public Law 117-68) amends the definition of covered individuals for in-state tuition to include Chapter 35 Dependents' Educational Assistance.
