How to Register

Prior registration is required to attend all OLLI courses and events.  Payment is required in full at time of registration.  There are three easy ways to register for OLLI courses:

  1. Online - The easiest and most secure way to register for a course is through the online portal.  Creating an account is required, but it’s quick and easy.  Registering online allows the option for payment by electronic check which eliminates the 2.75% credit card convenience fee.  See our step-by-step instructions for online registration below.
  2. By Phone - Call the office of Extended Learning at (760) 750-4020.  All credit card payments are subject to a 2.75% convenience fee.  No electronic check payments will be accepted by phone.
  3. By Mail - Complete and mail the registration form found in the back of the course catalog to CSUSM Extended Learning at 333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd., San Marcos, CA 92096.  Checks should be made payable to CSUSM.
