Refund Policy

Members are eligible for a refund of all fees minus an administrative fee of $25 if the request is received in writing at least one week before the first class of the session. Premium Members are eligible for a refund of all fees if the request is received in writing at least one week before the start of their first session.

Guest Policy

We encourage members to bring friends and family! Guests may attend courses that are not full or closed, when accompanied by an OLLI member. After consulting with the OLLI office regarding space availability, members can bring a guest to any course for which they are registered one time only. Guests must fully register for the course to attend any subsequent classes.

Courses cannot be audited.

Absent members cannot send replacements to class (registrations are non-transferable).

Scholarship Programs

If you wish to be considered for a scholarship, send a letter (via email is preferred) with your contact information and monthly income. Please send your request for the 2019-2020 academic year before August 12, 2019. Applicants must send a copy of their prior year tax return (page with adjusted gross income required) in addition to the letter of request.

We offer two types of scholarship:

For Premium Membership: one-half off the annual cost; the member is eligible for all benefits of Premium Membership including the option to take up to four courses per session (Fall/Winter/Spring). The summer session is not included.

For Basic Membership: upon payment of the $25 membership fee each session, the member may take up to two courses each session. The summer session is not included. Workshops incur an additional $25 fee.

Wait Lists

When a course, workshop, club, or discussion group is full we begin a wait list. We place interested members on the list and notify members via telephone. If a registered member drops the course, workshop, club or discussion group, we call the first person on the wait list; if a second member drops, we call the second person, etc. 

Please do not attend until you have been notified that there is space available and reserved for you.
