Helpful Tips for Easy Online Registration:

  1. Have Your Member ID Ready. You can find your ID by logging onto the OLLI website and selecting “Log In To Register & Renew” in the green menu box. Click the “ID Lookup” button at bottom of page.
  2. Pay Your Membership Fee Early, online, by mail, or by phone. This will help you get your classes faster and easier on registration day. Remember to click informed consent box at bottom of screen before clicking “submit.”
  3. Review Class Descriptions & Special Notes when planning your schedule. You can access this feature by clicking on title of class on the online schedule. It is linked to a pop-up box that contains special details, as well as reading lists and other information that peer leaders may have added. Not all classes start at the beginning of the semester. Some classes are one day only!
  4. Five-Class Limit. To provide more fair opportunities for members to enroll in their favorite classes, we will continue the class-limit policy through the first two weeks of fall registration. The limited classes are notated by a checkmark ( √ ). Fewer than half of the fall classes are limited so you may enroll in as many classes as you’d like, as long as five or fewer of the classes selected are notated with a checkmark. After two weeks we will turn off the class limit and you may add additional classes to your schedule where space is available.

A Brighter is a Stronger OLLI: Paul MooreCreating a Brighter OLLI…Begins with You!

What will OLLI look like in 3 years, in 5 years, or in 15 years? Recently our members told us that they are (very!) happy with the OLLI of today…that their membership has value, that OLLI is a wise investment. Our vision of OLLI is one of an organization that is stronger, smarter, more connected, and enduring, all coming together to Create a Brighter OLLI.

We’ve defined new ways for our members and supporters to help us achieve this goal, better ways to leverage their investment in the organization and help OLLI realize its vision. And, of course, we’re continuing with existing fundraising activities, starting with the launch of our 2016-17 Annual Fund Campaign. We invite you to take a look and learn from some of our current supporters about how you can help to strengthen our community, inspire other supporters, and achieve the greatest return on your investment in OLLI.

OLLI Volunteer Connections

Volunteers are the backbone of OLLI at CSU, Chico. They provide instruction, communications, technical support, outreach, and help us make important social connections. Without volunteer support, OLLI Chico could not provide the array of lifelong learning experiences members enjoy year-round. The Volunteer Connections Program is designed to keep OLLI programming sustainable by expanding volunteer participation. Learning more about you—your skills and interests—will help us connect you to areas of need within the organization. Email us if you’d like to Connect Today.
