A $150 annual fee entitles members to enroll in an unlimited number of OLLI courses (space permitting) from over 100 offered in each of three terms, from September to June. There is no per-course tuition. OLLI members are also able to participate in other non-course programs and social events.

Annual OLLI membership is $150 for the full year, but we have…
Our Spring Term Special for $75 starting Monday, February 26! Get a “taste of OLLI!" The Spring Special is available starting Monday, February 26 and covers all courses a member takes during Spring Term (which runs April 1–June 7).

Course topics include the arts, history, languages and cultures, life planning, literature, movement, nature, personal exploration, recreation, social sciences, and STEM. Learning is a pleasure for members and instructors alike because there are no tests, grades, or academic prerequisites.
