Classes / Study Groups:

Class / study group sessions are planned for 90 minutes, and courses will be held on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings (see above for times). Courses will meet once a week and vary in length from a single session to six weeks.  As a pilot program, the curriculum will include typical OLLI-UA offerings including courses in the arts, history, science, literature and social sciences presented by members from the four existing OLLI-UA campuses. We will work to enrich that curriculum to reflect any special interests of the OAH membership.

Membership and Registration:

Pro tip - OAH membership is included free with any of our regular campus memberships - a great value and benefit.

Additionally, starting 9/4 you can Purchase an OLLI-UA After Hours membership here that best meets your needs:

Unlimited Membership: Take as many classes as you would like during the six week program for one flat fee of $100. The quickest and easiest option for registration.

Pay Per Class Membership: Pay a base $25 membership fee plus a per class session fee of $15. A great way to get your feet wet with OLLI-UA.
Class session fees vary based on the number of times a class meets, for example, a single session (SS) class cost is $15, a class that meets three times has a fee of $45 (3 x $15). This option is best for individuals who would like to take a combination of classes that meet 1 to 4 times. Note: If you take a combination of classes that meet 5 or more times the unlimited membership is the best and easiest pricing option.

Membership is only good for OLLI-UA After Hours classes and does not apply to other OLLI-UA campus programs. 

Member Registration for OLLI-UA After hours begins Sept 24th.  Registration is first come first served, so so it is best to register early to ensure a seat. Once you purchase a membership it allows you to begin the registration process. (Note OAH membership is included for free with any of our regular campus memberships)

Refund Policy Requests for refunds are rare but are generally honored based on unavailability of a desired course(s) within the first two weeks of a semester.  We encourage registrants to consider multiple offerings or backup classes should they not receive a class of interest. Requests can be made by calling the OLLI-UA office at 626-9039 or contact us here .

Social Activities:

As a pilot program we will call heavily on registered members to help determine the social content. The facility will be available for member use an hour before class time. This should provide opportunities for members to engage socially over coffee or a meal.

Depending on response, we may include an OLLI Dines Out event which invites members to an early evening, relatively inexpensive dinner (or Saturday lunch) with fellow members. Local restaurants, varied menus, separate checks and free parking contribute to the success of this program. 

We will also plan an end of semester event at which we will solicit feedback about the operation of the program.

Leadership Opportunities:

All OLLI-UA campuses are volunteer-led by an elected Council. The pilot program for OLLI After Hours will receive operational support from the Membership and Outreach Committee of the OLLI-UA Board, and members of the Central Tucson Campus.

Members will be invited to take on responsibilities for curriculum, membership programs, financial planning and social activities after the completion of the pilot program. During the pilot program, members will be encouraged to assist in class hosting functions, AV support, lounge operations and other aspects of the program
