Membership and Community

Member Testimonies


Become an OLLI at ASU Member

Anyone 50+ can become a member! Our members come from all walks of life: many are retired yet others are still working, and there are no educational requirements. As a member, you will belong to an exclusive and vibrant learning community – a community of peers who have discovered the joy and thrill of lifelong learning fused with university-quality learning experiences and social enrichment. Our non-credit classes offer intellectual stimulation and a forum for friendship and socialization.

Low Membership Fees!

You become a member at the time you register for classes each semester. Membership is required to register for our classes, but you do not have to register for classes as a member of OLLI at ASU. Membership fees are paid each semester at the time of registration (not annually). This gives our members – many of whom are snowbirds – the flexibility to pay for only the semester(s) in which they will register for classes.


  • $20 - Spring Semester (January-May)
  • $10 - Summer Semester (June)
  • $20 - Fall Semester (September-December)

Membership fees are critical to our institute’s 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.

Reciprocal OLLI Fees

Currently, OLLI at ASU does not share in reciprocal agreements. Each OLLI is an entirely independent entity -- financially and programmatically. From time-to-time individual OLLIs may develop limited reciprocal initiatives or exchanges, so you may wish to inquire when you register at an OLLI.
