If you must withdraw from a course prior to the course start date please notify the OLLI by email or call 874-4197, at least two week before the class start date to receive a refund or credit toward another class.  When registering for courses online, you will need to accept the refund policy before continuing to check out.  Memberships are non-refundable. 
Are classes ever canceled?
Occasionally, we must cancel courses that do not meet enrollment minimums.  We typically make that call one week before the class start date, and we will notify you by phone or email.  We will issue you a full refund if you paid with a credit card. If you paid by cash or check, a credit voucher will be issued to you.

Are there additional fees for my class?
Please check the detail information for your course to determine if a materials fee, textbook, or pre-requisites are required.  

How do I print a receipt?
To print a receipt, sign in and select "My Transactions" from the menu bar on the left side of the screen and locate the class. Under "Action", select "Print View" and print your receipt. Upon payment of your membership and/or class a receipt is also emailed to you. 

Can I register for a class that is full?
All classes have a maximum class size that must be adhered to. If you wish to be considered for registration in a class that is currently full, you can request to be added to a waiting list by signing in online and clicking “Add to the Waiting List” link for the class that is full. If an opening becomes available, you will be notified to finalize your registration with payment. Placing your name on a waiting list does not guarantee a spot in the class.
