New Registration Procedure at OLLI!

OLLI wants to eliminate the stress on the first day of registration, especially for classes that close early. We also want to make the registration process more equitable. For Winter/Spring 2019, a new procedure will be implemented for Study Groups and OLLI Out of Town programs. Registration for lectures and After 5 will not change.

The initial registration period will begin Friday, Dec. 14 at 9 a.m. and end Friday, Jan. 11 at 4 p.m. Processing of registrations will not begin until January 14, so you can register any time during this period. All oversubscribed classes will be subject to a lottery to provide an equal chance for everyone to get in. Members who are not selected will be placed on a wait list and invited to join if space becomes available. Registration will still be possible after this period, provided spaces are available.

As before, you can register on-line, by mail or in-person at the OLLI office. Early submission does not increase chances of getting into a program - feel free to take your time! Other registration opportunities are at OLLI lectures and at the Winter Open House on Friday Jan 4, both at Washtenaw Community College. The methods of payment will not change. All payments must be made at the time of registration.

Additional things to know:

• Refunds will be provided for those who are not selected forprograms via the lottery. Our goal is to issue the refunds during the week after the lottery.

•  Everyone who applies for classes subject to the lottery will be notified of the outcome by Friday, January 18th.

• The Winter/ Spring OLLI catalog will go on-line on December 14th and it will arrive in the mail by mid-late December.

This new system will enable you to register at your leisure and help prevent computer crashes caused by the high volume of first-day registrations. It will also reduce the stress on the staff and registration volunteers.

OLLI offers scholarships for membership and all programming, including OLLI Out of Town. To request a scholarship, please contact the OLLI office.

Due to the new registration procedure, the OLLI office will have extra help on Friday, December 14, Monday, December 17, Wednesday, December 19, and Wednesday, January 9 to answer your questions. Feel free to call or come by the OLLI office on these preferred dates.

We hope to see you at our Winter Open House on Friday, January 4, 10:00-12:00pm at Washtenaw Communtiy College! You can drop off your registrations and enjoy some refreshments at our Open House!
