Yes, if you are an annual member in Lexington or Morehead, you are a member of both sites. You are welcome to sign up for courses at either or both sites, attend forums, one day intensives, special events, etc.

How do I find the actual courses available for registration?

How do I find the specific information on each class?
Click on the topic category, then on the class title. This will pull up full course descriptions, times, dates, locations, instructor, etc.

How do I register for a class?
When a class is open for registration, it will have an "Add to Cart" button to the right of the description. Click on the “Add to Cart” button on the class listing or from the specific class page. If you have not yet purchased a membership, you will be prompted to do so before you can add a class to your cart. Once your membership is added, you can continue with your class registration.

NOTE: Class space is not held until one progresses successfully all the way through the payment process.

When you choose any class, the required Risk Release will appear. You will need to complete the release by entering "YES" in the box as prompted. Once you have accepted the agreement, you can proceed with adding the class to your cart. You will have to do this with every class. Be sure to read each Risk Release.

How will I know if got into the class?
After “Checking Out” and completing your credit card payment, you will receive a class confirmation and transaction receipt via email. If you do not receive these emails, your registration may or may not have been completed. Contact the OLLI Office if this happens.
If you register by mail, you will receive your confirmation by mail.

Do I receive a receipt?

You can also log onto your account and print a receipt for any of your classes. After signing in, select "My Financial Transactions" from the menu bar on the left.
