Tips for Registering Online
- Only one person can register per unique email address. If you share an email address with another OLLI member, one of you will need to register by mail. We encourage all our members to have their own email address!
- Please register for one class per time slot. If we are unable to place you in your selected class, you will have an opportunity to register for another class for that day/time if desired, at a later date.
- Rank your "Order of Preference" for each class. Rank the class you most want as number 1. Use each preference number only once. You should have only one class ranked as 1, one class ranked as 2, and so on.
