Membership Information

Backstage gallery tourFresno State’s OLLI has a variety of choices for member participation, including General memberships, as well as short courses and field trips. You choose how involved you wish to be, depending on your availability and interests. Seating is limited at some events so RSVP as early as possible! Only registered OLLI members may attend OLLI activities. Membership fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Osher General Sessions and Short Courses are open ONLY to members. Due to space limitations, we cannot accommodate guests. Non-members may attend Field Trips, space permitting, by paying the "non-member" field trip fees.

Anyone can attend a General Session by becoming a member. A General Member is $40 per person and can attend all seven General Sessions offered during the semester.
