Frequently Asked Questions

How can I take Lifelong Learning Program classes?

If you are 50 years old or older, you may take courses either as a member or as a non-member. Paying a reasonable membership fee, members enjoy the benefits of signing up for classes and special events at a discount and at no costs at all, in some cases.

Non-members do not pay any membership fee. They normally are charged higher fees for classes and special events. While there may be a few free classes for non-members, there are usually more for members.

How can I sign up for membership and/or classes?

Membership is open to any adult 50 or older. Registration for membership is open throughout the year and the appropriate fee is due at the time of enrollment.
