How can I tell when my membership expires?
After logging into the website, at the top of each page you will see “Welcome [your name]. Your membership expires [date]. ”
Do I have to be a member of Senior University to take classes or to travel?
Yes. An annual membership is required throughout the entire term or travel event, not just at the time of enrollment.
How many courses may I take?
You may take one course in each time slot. Normally there are eight to ten time slots, so you may enroll for eight to ten courses in the fall or winter terms. When participating in the live online courses, you can take over 20 classes during the term, with free access to all our on-demand classes.
Do I have to pay for each class?
You do not pay for each course. There is a single registration fee for each term or lecture series, allowing you to take as many classes as you wish in the term. Some courses require materials which may have an additional cost.
How will I know that I have been enrolled?
You will receive a notice confirming your enrollment before classes begin via email.
How do I access the live Zoom classes?
About two weeks prior to the start of classes, you will receive an email that contains the website/Zoom link.
How do I watch YouTube on-demand classes?
About two weeks prior to the start of classes, you will receive an email that contains a link to the entire semester playlist. Check that playlist each night for newly recorded classes.
May I register late?
Late enrollment is permitted for classes that are not filled.
How does Senior University determine who may register for courses with limited enrollment?
Some classes with limited enrollment fill quickly. Applicants are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be notified if a course you requested is no longer available, and you may make an alternate selection. Prior to the beginning of classes, you will receive a confirmation listing the courses for which you are enrolled.
