When and why did the state decide not to permit senior citizens from auditing university classes?

The senior citizen tuition waiver was eliminated at all UNC-system universities when the General Assembly passed a bill in 2009 repealing it, said school spokeswoman Dana Fischetti.

“UNCW had to eliminate that benefit for senior citizens by state law,” Fischetti said.

According to a newsletter released by the General Assembly’s fiscal research division, the change was expected to save the state about $300,000 each year.

    I can’t possibly see how eliminating the senior citizen tuition waiver could save the university system $300,000 a year. Makes no sense.
