Are you eager to know more about the upcoming semester with OLLI@UGA?
Here are some things to help keep you “in the know.”
Membership: You must be a current member of OLLI@UGA to register for classes. Membership does have its privileges and not only will you be able to register for classes but as a member you can participate in any of our Shared Interest Groups, Travel Study trips, or the many social events held throughout the year. Memberships will be available for purchase starting June 1. Prospective members that would like to receive notice that the membership period is open can add their name here.
Catalogs: Catalogs for the upcoming Fall 2018 semester are currently scheduled to be mailed early-mid July. We still have plenty of classes available through May & June – view the Spring catalog now.
Registration: Registration for Fall 2018 is scheduled to open on late July. Your OLLI membership must be current and in place prior to registering for classes.
Parking tags: The current parking permits are valid through July 31, 2018. For fall, when you register for one class at River’s Crossing, you will be assigned a semi-permanent parking permit valid for our parking lot. Parking tags will be available for pick up in the office starting in August. They will not mailed.
Registration: You may register for a class up until the first class meeting, unless otherwise noted. For ease, please use the Online Registration Guide on page 3 of your catalog or you can print the Guide now and have it handy. Please do not spend time frustrated – if you get stuck, we can help walk you through the process. If you want to first give it a try on your own, use our newly created Practice Event in the Online Store. This practice opportunity is available now. If you choose to register by paper, you do not have to wait until registration opens in order to mail/drop by your registration form. All paper registration forms will be date stamped in the order received and processed the day registration opens.
Credit on Account: If you have credit available on your OLLI account, you can use it to pay for classes, trips, social events, or even membership. To use your credit on account, we recommend reviewing our Credit on Account one-sheet reference guide to familiarize yourself with the steps.
Class Hosts: Throughout the year, new and current class hosts are welcome to attend a host training session. Learn or re-familiarize yourself with the tasks needed for a successful class host experience. Upcoming training sessions will be held at River’s Crossing and dates will be posted soon. RSVPs are helpful but not required.
Course Updates: For various reasons, changes were made after the catalog was printed and distributed. You can find information regarding all changes on our Course Updates page.
