College issued Gold Cards are no longer needed for Senior Citizens to take advantage of benefits at the College of Southern Idaho. In an effort to simplify access to college benefits, a driver’s license or any other government issued proof-of-age document will now be accepted in place of the college issued card. Some benefits available to individuals who are 60+ years of age include:

  • Free tuition for lower division CSI courses for non-degree seeking students
  • Free use of the CSI Library while taking courses
  • $1 general admission to most CSI athletic events
  • Discounted CSI Student Recreation memberships
  • Free use of the CSI Student Recreation Center walking track
  • And more…

Seniors are also encouraged to register today for the college’s free Over 60 and Getting Fit courses, and for any of the college’s flex start Active Aging Courses ($35 applies). Most courses begin the week of September 21, but registration is open all semester. Active Aging courses include, but are not limited to:

  • Yoga
  • Weight Training
  • Zumba
  • Pilates
  • Barre
  • Water Fitness
  • Express Fit
  • Wisdom of the Ages
  • Fit & Fun

To register for these courses, many of which are being offered in distance learning formats, or for more information about other benefits for Senior Citizens at the College of Southern Idaho, contact Ann Rolfes, CSI Student Services Specialist at or 208-732-6475.
