General Information


Auditing UD credit courses

Registration for UD classes as a Listener/Auditor without credit or grade is available for OLLI members. Class attendance is required, but class participation is not. Audit one UD credit course while enrolled in OLLI on a space-available basis without paying tuition. The privilege does not include certificate programs or UD travel/study programs. All relevant fees apply. The final day to request to audit spring classes is February 12, 2022. To search for available courses, visit udel.edu/courses. Information and request forms are available by calling 302-573-4417.

Identification badges

We ask our members to wear an identification badge at all times. Member and guest badges (and temporary badges for those who forget) are available in the OLLI office.


Guests and visitors

Visitors and prospective members who wish to become familiar with our program are welcome to visit on a single day. Please visit the office to pick up an ID badge.


Textbooks, supplies and handouts

Each semester’s catalog lists any textbooks or other supplies required for some courses and any charge for handouts beyond the allocation provided each instructor. You are responsible for these costs.
