OLLI Classes for Members

Members are encouraged to attend as many classes as desired and may bring guests for one session each. Special events and tours require reservations and are limited to members only unless specified. Applications are available for guests and new members to join at any time. Our classes and programs are for personal enrichment, and do not provide University credit.


For all new and renewing members, please fill out our membership application. Annual scholarships are available to those who qualify.



Except where additional fees are noted in course descriptions, classes in the catalogs are included in your OLLI $45 annual membership (Sept. 1-Aug. 31) and require no additional payment. Books and supplies are not included in membership fees or scholarships.


Please note: If an additional fee is required for a class or an event, make checks payable to the Board of Regents by the deadline listed in the class description. Your cancelled check is your reservation. Reservation checks should be delivered in person to the OLLI office in the Nelson Building. Do NOT send or take reservation checks to the University. The delay caused by mailing your check to the University could result in your missing a chance to reserve a spot.



For all new members, please join online (annual membership only) or download and fill out our membership application. Those who purchase summer memberships will receive a nontransferable coupon worth $25 toward the purchase of a $45 OLLI annual membership good September-August. The nontransferable coupon may be applied to memberships purchased by September 30. Books and supplies are not included in membership fees. Renewal or new annual memberships for September-August will be accepted beginning August 1.


OLLI Communication for Members

Attendance in Classes with

High-demand classes require a commitment from those OLLI members who pre-register. Those who pre-register and do not attend the first class session will have their spaces filled from the waiting list and will lose their spots in the class. Out of respect for the instructor/facilitator and other students, after the second session, no new participants will be added to any class requiring pre-registration.



See our locations page for maps and parking information.
