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. All of our presenters are volunteers. Please arrive on time as a courtesy to presenters and other attendees.

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. Click on the green button in the top right corner) or download and fill out our membership application. Books and supplies are not included in membership fees. Renewal or new annual memberships for September-August will be accepted beginning August 1.

When a class or event requires pre-registration, such information will be in the catalog description for that class. Please pre-register only for those classes, tours, and events that you feel confident you will be able to attend.
