Golden ID Program
The Golden Identification Card Program at the University of Maryland College Park allows eligible senior citizens to take advantage of a wide variety of courses at the University and receive certain other benefits. This Golden ID Card will not only provide access to a maximum of three courses a semester (on a space available basis), but access to the University's libraries, certain other non-academic services and the Golden ID Student Association. The Golden ID Student Association provides cultural and social events, course recommendations and peer advising.
To be eligible to participate in the program, you must be aged 60 years or older, a legal resident of Maryland, and be retired (not working for more than 20 hours per week). The tuition is waived, however students are charged part-time undergraduate student fees (minus the health, student activities and athletic fees).
