Still time to sign up for 5-week classes taking place Oct. 17-Nov. 20

Registration is open now for classes meeting October 17-November 20 at the University of Delaware’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) program. A wide selection of online classes, as well as classes in Kent and Sussex counties, is still available.

For OLLI members who have already registered and paid for Fall 2023 membership, unlimited additional classes can be added at no cost, thanks to OLLI’s one-fee membership plan. 

For those who haven’t yet registered for Fall 2023 classes, registration is still available to sign up for Fall membership at a flat fee of $260, allowing you to sign up for as many UD OLLI fall classes as you like, on-site or online. Prior OLLI membership is not required. Some course descriptions may list an additional fee for supplies, or a partner fee.

Financial assistance is available. Learn more by completing the online form, or contacting any UD OLLI office.

There is no cost for parking at UD OLLI locations, and free Zoom videoconferencing support is provided to OLLI’s online course participants.
