How OLLI registration works

Registration How-to thumbnail
Registration How-To: Step by Step

Priority registration period is noncompetitive — During priority registration, registrations are received as class requests into a lottery system to ensure fairness in allocation of classes. Course selection and availability is not first-come, first-served. When demand exceeds availability in popular courses, the allocation process takes into account a variety of factors, including the priority a registrant assigned to the course. After the priority registration period closes, registration is unavailable until the late registration and drop/add period opens, at which time late registrations and drop/add are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Using the online registration system — Registration takes place primarily online. Prior OLLI members who used our Fall 2021 online registration system should sign into the online registration system with their existing username and password. New OLLI members, or those who have not registered since Fall 2021 must create a new registration account. Click here for more details about how to register online —

Our financial assistance process is simple, protects your privacy and is enthusiastically supported by fellow OLLI members who want to make sure the program is always accessible.
