Membership

Join Us | The OLLI at ASU membership fee gives you access to course registration, member-exclusive events, immersive experiences and special event announcements. The program is designed for the active, lifelong learner ages 50+ with a curious mind!  Membership fees are paid each semester.  Our members come from all walks of life. Many are retired yet others are still working, and there are no educational requirements to participate in our program.

About Membership Fees | Membership fees are critical to our institute‚Äôs success and sustainability. They help support dynamic quality programming and remind students that they are part of an engaged learning community and a national network of lifelong learners. The Bernard Osher Foundation allows each institute to develop a fee structure that is best suited to its local community. The Osher Foundation only supports OLLI programs that have developed a sustainable financial model, which includes renewable membership fees.
