Renew Your Membership

To renew your membership, log in to the registration portal and visit the Memberships & Renewals area. Select the Osher Membership (New or Renewal) option and complete your transaction.

We recommend that you renew membership in a separate transaction from class registrations. Doing so avoids some potential issues that may arise related to eligibility for classes.

UR Osher memberships and renewals (available only to eligible UR employees and retirees) must be processed manually using the paper membership application.
