How to Register for an OLLI Study Group
Whether you are new to OLLI at Tufts or a returning member, our registration for study groups has changed. If you are interested in one of our Study Groups, take a moment to get familiar with the new registration system and process. Our OLLI team has worked diligently on instructions, which we have hosted here on our site, as well as a step by step video to get you prepared.
If you aren't ready to take a class, you can still become a member and take advantage of the other benefits. Visit our membership page to learn more about membership and our new membership profile creation process.
Tufts OLLI is proud to partner with Brookhaven at Lexington. Through our partnership, the annual member fee for our program is covered by Brookhaven. With the migration to our new registration platform, for the 2022 -2023 year, those members who reside at Brookhaven have a slightly different registration process. Please contact our office, firstname.lastname@example.org, for assistance as a manual step is required.

Lead a Study Group of Your Own!
Do you have a great idea for a new study group? Want to share your interests or your area of expertise with others? Don't worry if you've never led a class before: our Curriculum Committee would be happy to talk you through the process or help you formulate your ideas, so your study group will be as enjoyable an experience for you as it will be for the participants.
Non-member instructors are eligible to be paid $25 per teaching hour. Member instructors are eligible for a free class as a thank you for being a study group leader. Tufts OLLI is open to proposals from OLLI members, Tufts Faculty and Students, as well as other outside experts and instructors.

The Zoom classes have worked out very well. I am a semi social media-friendly user, and found picking up the Zoom easy. Certainly in-person classes are always the best, but the Zoom is a great alternative.
In June 2006 I walked out of a 36-year teaching career and walked into life as a student again. I've taken fun and stimulating Osher classes, met wonderful, engaged people and enjoyed cultural and social experiences ever since. Tufts Osher Institute has enriched me beyond my wildest expectations. Thanks to all.

I love virtual classes. My back loves virtual classes. And my ears love virtual classes because I can hear every word of the conversation. Crazily I now prefer them to real life classes.
