How is OLLI funded?

OLLI@CSUMB is made possible thanks to the generous support of The Bernard Osher Foundation, in-kind support from Cal State Monterey Bay, membership fees, and donations. Learn more


How do I register for courses?

1.  Online

2.  Phone:  (831) 582-5500; 10am-3pm.


Is Membership in OLLI required?

Yes, membership in OLLI@CSUMB supports the program and enables one to enjoy the full range of offerings. Learn more


Is the cost of Membership an additional fee?

Yes; however, for the Mini-Plum Membership only.  You'll pay $20 and then pay as you go for the courses.

Please note, the membership fee is included the Full Plum and Spring Plum Membership packages. The only additional charges will be if a course has a special fee (noted in the description and catalog) or if you enroll in more courses than your membership includes.  Learn more


I forgot my Username and/or Password

Forgot Password? and Forgot Username? retrieval links can be found beneath the log in box.  Enter the email address associated with your account and an email will be sent with a link or URL which you can cut and paste into your browser.

If your email address is associated with more than one account, please email olli@csumb.edu or call (831) 582-5500 and we'll retrieve your password/username for you.


How do I check my current course enrollment?

Your enrollment history will appear in your MY REGISTERED COURSES file.  (You must be logged in to your account to view.)  Please scroll down to find the current semester's registration. 


What is View Shopping Cart?

In the upper right corner of each page, you'll find a View Shopping Cart button.  While logged in, you can access your cart at any time.  We strongly encourage you do so -- especially before finalizing your order.

1.  Make sure you have an empty shopping cart before you begin the enrollment process.

2.  Delete items from your cart by clicking on the trash can image directly to the left of each item. 

3.  If you need to delete a Membership, you'll have to delete the other items first, and then the trash can icon will appear.


Where are the courses held?

Most OLLI courses are held at CSUMB's new campus at Ryan Ranch in Monterey.  Select offerings are held on the main CSUMB campus, in Salinas at CSUMB @ Salinas City Center and other community venues.


How do I know where to go?

  • The course location is included in each course description. 
  • For every course you are enrolled in, you will receive an email with directions and pertinent course information.
  • Emails will be marked OLLI and will be sent 7 to 10 days prior to the start of your course.
  • Directions can also be found here


How do I drop a course?

Membership Packages are not refundable.  We are; however, able to swap a course for another or drop one if you'd prefer.  We can also refund individual course fees for courses purchased in addition to your Membership. 

Please email olli@csumb.edu or call (831) 582-5500. We are happy to help.


How do I redeem a course credit?

Email the OLLI office at olli@csumb.edu with the course you wish to take.  If the course is available, we'll enroll you from our end. 


How do I propose an OLLI course?

OLLI@CSUMB is seeking instructors for the Spring 2018 term (Aug. 24 - Dec. 14, 2018).  If you would like to share your time and expertise with the OLLI community, please complete a Course Proposal Form and submit by April 30, 2018.   Learn more
