Taking OLLI Classes:

If you would like to participate in classes during a term, OLLI offers flexible payment options.

  • PAYGO: Pay as you go. Each class – no matter the number of sessions or whether in-person or Zoom – costs $15, which is paid upon registration. This option does not include OLLI Digital Library.  Pay-Per-View is now available for certain courses @ $15.00 per course.
  • UNLIMITED: $125 per member.  Take as many courses as you like in-person, Zoom and have access to our OLLI Digital Library.
