Go-to-College Program

Spring Semester 2023 Registration Information

Lifelong learners (age 40-plus) are encouraged to continue their education by taking regular undergraduate classes along with younger students. Participants are able to enroll as auditors in a variety of courses, on a space-available basis. 

Please note: The University of St. Thomas will not collect vaccine status for Selim Center or other non-degree seeking students. The Selim Center expects that any student registering for any Selim Center program will be fully vaccinated. Individuals who are not vaccinated for whatever reason will be expected to follow current guidelines related to masking and distancing.

General Information:
