Member Policies

Code of Conduct

Membership in society implies minimal norms for civil behavior towards one another. It is our expectation that all members of our OLLI community treat volunteers, staff, and fellow members with respect. Each individual is accountable for her/his actions, responsible for their decisions and must understand that there are consequences of any behavior that is inconsistent with these values and expectations.

Non-member Registration

Non-members may enroll in any OLLI class (unless otherwise indicated) for an additional $20 per class. Non-members must register by contacting the OLLI office.

Refunds and Withdrawals

  • Courses that are cancelled by OLLI qualify for refunds/donations.
  • Requests for withdrawals from courses or events must be made seven days prior  to the start date of the course or event, to qualify for a refund. After that, fees are no longer refundable.
  • Neither absences nor presenter cancellations of a single session in a multi-session course qualifies for a refund. Note: Presenters who cancel sessions are encouraged to offer make-up sessions.
  • Special exceptions to this policy will be indicated in the course, event, or trip description, if applicable.
  • To withdraw from a class, call the OLLI office at 603-255-3553.


Members are welcome to invite non-member friends and relatives who might be interested in joining OLLI, to one session of a class, contingent on space/seat availability. Members MUST CALL the OLLI office first, to ensure that there is room in the class for a guest to attend. Guests may attend the session at no charge, however, they must pay for any costs associated with course materials such as lunch, admission fees, or course supplies. Complimentary guest privileges do not apply to trips.

Care Assistants

OLLI at the University of New Hampshire supports member accessibility. When a member requires the assistance of a caregiver or other support person, the program fee will be waived for the member’s care assistant. When applicable, material fees or admission charges related to the class or event will be collected to defray specific materials/event costs.

Pets and Service Animals

In an effort to reduce risk to allergy suffers and fragile or less physically stable members, pets are prohibited in OLLI classes, tours and other OLLI events. Service animals are exempt from this policy.

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity and intellectual truth are among the foremost priorities in institutions of higher learning. Without these, there is no real learning, critical thinking, creativity, or development of new knowledge.

It is essential that OLLI presenters have the right to express their views in a professionally responsible manner. It is also essential that diverse opinions are expressed and discussed. The views and opinions expressed in OLLI at the University of New Hampshire courses and presentations are those of the individual presenters and class participants and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of the university or of OLLI.

Inclement Weather Policy

Announcements of closures will be posted on WMUR TV and its website Please do not call the OLLI Office as that recording does not get updated due to weather. The OLLI Office will be closed if the unversity is closed.  For safety reasons, all OLLI meetings and activities are cancelled if the local UNH campus is closed. If UNH remains open but OLLI decides to cancel an event/class due to weather conditions, an email or phone call will be made to all who registered or RSVP’d.  OLLI members are personally responsible for their own safety and must exercise good judgment when making traveling choices in inclement weather. The University advises you not to travel if you believe you are putting yourself in harm’s way.
