    OLLI at DU registration will begin at 7:00 am on Monday, November 14.  OLLI DU has does not have an "open request” registration period beginning with Winter Term 2023.  This means that courses are filled on a first come, first serve basis.  Courses which have met their maximum enrollment will not allow further registrations.  You will receive immediate confirmation of enrollment upon registration. Registration remains open until the course meets its maximum or until 11:59 pm on the Thursday before the course begins or the webinar occurs.

    The Winter Term will run from Monday, January 9 through Monday, March 6 (no class on MLK Day on 1/16/23).  

    Historically, 80% of OLLI registrations come in during the first week of “open registration!”  So, register early in order to avoid disappointment!
