We have postponed courses until June 1, 2020 according to the university’s response to COVID-19. Students and visitors should not come to West Campus. We look forward to welcoming you to OLLI when we re-open!

Our classes meet at Washington University’s West Campus in the building on the northwest corner of Forsyth and Jackson Avenue in Clayton, MO.

OLLI memberships are available for purchase during registration periods. Students can purchase memberships through our online registration system.

Membership Options

All-Inclusive Membership

$675 Full Academic Year

Our All-Inclusive Membership is perfect for people who want to take advantage of the entire OLLI experience. This full academic year option entitles you to take up to three courses in the summer, fall, winter, and spring for a total of 12 courses. Members at this level can add extra study groups for $150 each. This membership also covers the $10 membership fee (beginning in fall 2019) and $25 surcharge for continuing courses (Reading The New Yorker, Reading The Economist and Current Events). Pay $675 or only $56.00 per course. This membership is available to purchase in the summer.

The All-Inclusive Membership is non-refundable.

Annual Membership

$460 Full Academic Year

The Annual Membership is for students who want to engage in a learning community but may travel in the summer and aren’t quite ready to participate at the All-Inclusive membership level.

Students are entitled to take either (a) two 8-week courses or (b) one 8-week and two 4-week courses in each of the fall, winter, and spring terms. Students who purchase the Annual Membership will be exempt from paying the $10 membership fee (beginning in fall 2019) and the surcharge on SIG courses.

This membership will be available for $460 in the fall. The summer term, as usual, is not included and must be paid for separately.

The Annual Membership is non-refundable.

Individual Course(s)

$75 for each 4-week course / $150 for one 8-week course

Students can also sign up for courses individually, paying by term. Please note that the price of a single four-week course is $75 this summer. In the fall a single eight-week course will be $150, a reduction of 12%. However, there will be no discount for a second course.

A once-a-year $10 membership fee will be charged beginning Fall 2019. The membership fee is non-refundable.

We have suspended courses as well as in-person visits and appointments temporarily according to the university’s response to COVID-19. Students and visitors should not come to West Campus.

Staff are currently working remotely and are able to assist you. Please call the OLLI office phone (314) 935-4237 and leave a message. Your call will be returned as soon as possible.
