More Info

The financially self-supporting OLLI@CSUMB provides personal enrichment opportunities for people age 50 or better through an ever-expanding offering of unique, university-level courses and experiences.


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?

You may register online or via phone (831) 582-5500; 10:00am - 3:00pm (Monday - Friday). Online is the fastest way to secure a spot in your favorite course.   

Please email olli@csumb.edu or call (831) 582-5500 if we can be of assistance in any way. 


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?

No, the membership fee is included in all three 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


The course I'm interested in is higher or lower than the $40 Mini-Plum Membership.  Why is that?

 OLLI has always been a membership program; however, in the past we moved a portion of the individual course fees into a membership fund. 

This year, rather than charge a separate membership fee on top of a course fee, we opted for three value-added Membership Packages. 

We chose $40 as a midway price point for our Mini-Plum Membership as our courses run from $25 to $70. We think $40 for a course + the benefits that a Membership can bring is a fantastic bargain! 

If you think so too, perhaps you'll consider making a donation so that we may continue keeping our fees low and accessible to most.


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) 582-4377 and we'll remedy it straight away. 


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 propose an OLLI course?
