Pay Attention to Dates

IMPORTANT: Please use the instructions that are appropriate for either Priority Registration or Open Registration. The Courses and Sign Up page on our website includes an explanation of the differences between these two periods.

Basically, Priority Registration is a short period prior to the next quarter during which every member has an equal chance of being enrolled in his/her preferred courses. After Priority Registration closes, there will be a brief period in which a computerized lottery is performed and then Open Registration starts. During Open Registration, courses are selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

Find out when Priority Registration is scheduled by checking the OLLI Calendar on our website, and be sure to make online course requests or submit printed course requests to the office by the deadline indicated.
