Emeritus Program (55+)

The pursuit of knowledge is a lifelong process. It doesn't end when you walk across the stage at graduation or when you receive your degree or certificate. It doesn't end when your kids have gone off to college or when you've retired. And it certainly doesn't end at age 55!

Whether you're an older college graduate picking up extra classes for your personal enrichment or stepping into a college classroom for the first time, Oakton's Emeritus Program offers a wide range of intellectually engaging college courses for older adults.

Our highly regarded instructors and speakers are experts in their fields and present lectures giving seasoned students the opportunity to share valuable learning experiences with their peers. In our Emeritus Program, you will enjoy enriching explorations of the arts, humanities, sciences, international politics, religion and more.
