Dear OLLI members ,

Your OLLI office staff have been working closely with Granite State College (GSC) and OLLI volunteers to make the safest, most appropriate decision regarding the delivery of OLLI courses in light of the impact of the COVID 19 virus. We have been cautiously weeding through the extensive information that seems to change from minute to minute in relation to the individual concerns that some of you have been bringing to our attention.

Recognizing the need for an abundance of caution during this unprecedented pandemic; OLLI courses, social events, special interest groups, and in-person meetings are canceled effective immediately through April 30 th , 2020. This includes all class sessions that are currently in progress. On April 15 th , OLLI will reassess and make a decision about the path to take beyond April 30 th .

A full list of the current cancelled courses can be found below. Please note the start date to determine if your course is cancelled.

OLLI courses will not move to an online format, we apologize for the confusion.

OLLI courses will not be rescheduled to later this term.

Members have three choices 1) opt for full refund 2) opt to donate class fee or 3) a combination of both. please email us with your preference; refund, donation, or a combination of both.

We appreciate your patience as we strive to process your refund and /or donation as quickly as possible.
If you paid online your refund will be made back to your card. If you paid by check, you will receive a check from the University System of NH, and if you registered over the phone we will call you to obtain your credit card information.
