Frequently Asked Questions

Yes.  Starting June 2021, all OLLI students must have a current OLLI membership to register for classes.

Due to COVID-19, all courses are currently held online using Zoom. In September 2021, we will transition back to in-person classes and offer several different course options (in-person, hybrid and Zoom).

In-person classes are held at Emory Continuing Education, which is located at 2635 Century Pkwy NE, Suite 300, Atlanta, GA 30345.

What are hybrid courses? Hybrid course options are where some students attend face-to-face in the classroom and others join simultaneously via Zoom. These courses have limited seats in the classroom available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Other students sign up for the online option and join the class via Zoom.
