Service Details


The Senior Citizen Education Program (SCEP) allows older adults in Minnesota to take classes for little to no cost at state-sponsored colleges and universities. This program was established by the State of Minnesota to give older adults the opportunity to continue learning through credit and non-credit higher education courses.
