Osher Institute Classes & Online Registration

Effective fall 2017, the Osher Institute introduces online course registration for members. Also available is online membership purchase and renewal. Members should register for all events, including those free and open to the public, using the online registration portal. Guests may be added to public events.

Registration for Fall 2017 classes opens at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 15, 2017

A number of resources are available to support online registration.

  • Review our online registration instructions with FAQ & step-by-step guides.
  • Register for online registration training held August 15 & 16. Contact the Osher office for details.
  • Plan your schedule using the print edition to speed online registration.

In addition to Osher Institute classes listed in the online registration portal, Osher members are eligible to audit select classes. And if you have an idea for a class, we invite you to submit a course proposal.

Osher Series on Aging Well

The Osher Series on Aging Well offers classes and events related to financial, emotional and physical health and well-being for seniors. Classes are available to members only, while select events are free and open to the public. Osher members should register for all Osher Series on Aging Well programs (labeled with Re in the print catalog) using the online registration portal.

Eligibility Reminders

Osher Gold members may register for as many of the courses listed in the online registration portal as they’d like for no charge unless otherwise noted. Silver members pay $100 for credit courses for audit and pay the listed course fee for all other courses. Non-members are welcome to register for Osher events that are free and open to the public. Free events require registration.

Paper-Based Registration

Online registration is the preferred method to register for Osher Institute classes and events. For popular classes, online registration is more likely to result in enrolling in your desired class(es), as paper-based registrations will be processed after the start of online registration. To complete a paper-based registration, download a registration form, complete and fax to (804) 287-1264. You may also mail your registration, which is required when paying by check, to:

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
School of Professional & Continuing Studies
University of Richmond, VA 23173

If you’re in the neighborhood, please feel free to drop by the office for assistance with online registration. The Osher office is located in Room 100 of the Special Programs Building on UR Drive. Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Registration reminder emails will be sent prior to the start date of each class. Class location and parking information will be included.

Off-campus Programs

All registrants for off-campus Osher programs must complete a Liability Release form for each program. Additionally we ask that each participant carry with them emergency information, and we provide this I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) form that participants may use to compile this information.
