UCLA Extension


I have enjoyed choosing classes from a rich smorgasbord of stimulating subjects, taught by top-notch instructors, and forming satisfying new friendships with other enthusiastic members. I highly recommend Osher to all young-at-heart older adults who want to enrich their lifetime learning experience.”
Marlene Zweig, OLLI member

How to Enroll
You can enroll in courses online through the UCLA Extension website. You will need to create a MyExtension account in order to enroll online. For directions on how to create a MyExtension account & enroll online, click here.

You can also enroll over the phone with the UCLA Extension registration department, by calling (310) 825-9971, ext. 601. Please note that phone registration is currently unavailable due to the CA Shelter in Place order. Once staff can return to the office, phone registration will be available again.

Refund requests will be accepted through the close of business on the final refund date, which is printed on your enrollment receipt (typically this is 2 weeks after course start date). For every refund request totaling $30 or more, a $30 administrative fee is assessed (this fee is waived for Plus members). OLLI membership dues are nonrefundable and nontransferable.

To request a refund, call (310) 825-9971, ext. 601 or email your request to refunds@uclaextension.edu
