OLLI Course Registration

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) is an adult educational and social organization. Membership grants access to all of Widener's campus including our Memorial Wolfgram Library, fitness center and classes, as well as involvement in a variety of OLLI groups and events throughout the year. Classes are scheduled during the daytime Monday through Friday, with occasional Saturday events.

A Term Membership includes unlimited classes, as well as access to the library, gym, pool, fitness classes, and other amenities of Widener's campus. Members also received discounted rates on trips, events, and excursions throughout their membership. Term memberships may be purchased for the spring, summer, or fall semesters.

An Annual Membership includes unlimited classes in EACH of our three semesters. Members also receive discounted rates on trips, events, and excursions throughout their membership.

Courses are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Wait list names will be taken in the event that a course fills. Individuals will be contacted for space availability after the first week of classes has occurred. Whenever possible, based on offerings, students wait-listed in the fall will be guaranteed registration in the same course if it is offered in the spring.

OLLI students can register electronically by submitting the registration form with payment information to, or by mailing a registration form and check to:
