Auditing UD credit courses

UD OLLI members may audit one University of Delaware credit course during each fall or spring semester for which they are registered. Registrations for annual membership may audit one UD course at a time. Courses eligible for OLLI auditing do not include online/distance learning courses, certificate programs, courses taken for credit and UD travel/study programs. All relevant fees, such as registration and student activities fees, will apply. For more information, contact the OLLI office.
