If you paid using a credit card for a course that is cancelled, a full refund will be credited to your credit card account within ten business days. If you paid using a check or cash, a refund check will be processed, however, this may require several weeks.
If the course you have requested has filled to capacity prior to receiving your registration, you will automatically be placed on a waiting list for the course. Should space become available in the course, you will be contacted and given the opportunity to enroll. You will not be charged for the course until you are enrolled.

On occasion, Clemson University faculty and students are interested in working with OLLI members on research projects specific to engaged aging. Opportunities to participate in such studies will be announced to the OLLI membership via the weekly e-newsletter, and your personal involvement is entirely at your discretion. We do not share your contact information with any group or individual. For questions, please contact Julie Vidotto at 864-633-5244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A non-refundable $30.00 annual membership is required to participate in OLLI courses and activities unless otherwise stated.
OLLI follows the Clemson University inclement weather policy. When Clemson University is closed due to inclement weather, all OLLI classes are cancelled or postponed to a later date.
OLLI at CU is a community of intellectually active mature adults. Membership entails mutual respect among members and instructors as they pursue knowledge and explore individual interests. Failure to treat ideas, viewpoints, the classroom environment and interests of other members of the community with respect and civility compromises the intellectual climate at OLLI, and cannot be tolerated. The OLLI administration and volunteer leadership are responsible for ensuring that the Code of Conduct is being followed in all OLLI-sponsored programs.
This OLLI at CU Code of Conduct is congruent with that for students at Clemson University (www.clemson.edu/administration/studentaffairs/student-handbook/code-of-conduct) in promoting behavior that enables enlightened discourse among individuals.
Please understand that by signing up for courses you are giving OLLI permission, for publicity purposes, to use any photographs that are taken during the semester.

We rely on your evaluations to improve our course offerings constantly and help our instructors do a better job. If it is a rave, we want to know. If the course did not work for you, we need to know that too. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts about these courses. If you prefer to complete a paper evalaution, please save the file below to your computer, then fill it out and then you can email it as an attachment or print it and mail it in.
