Fees/Special Charges Payment of the membership fees entitles participation in the OLLI-CSUDH program. Some activities, however, have special expenses which are passed on to participants at the lowest possible cost. These include computer courses and instructor-led classes. Payment is required when reservations are made. Note that the Osher Lecture series, which is offered each fall and spring, requires registration even though the course is free of charge to members.
Courses Courses may vary in price, time of class, and number of meetings. Nominal prices are charged for classes to compensate instructors for transportation and parking expenses incurred.
Discussion Groups Facilitated discussion group are conducted, often in conjunction with a video or film. We are always looking for member-volunteers, such as retired teachers, to help facilitate group discussions.
