To receive ongoing brochures, catalogs of activities, and newsletters, and to participate in any OLLI activities, individuals pay an annual membership fee of $25. Additional fees may be required for participation in activities.

The annual membership fee is usually paid at the same time that one registers for OLLI activities, but it may be paid anytime after Fall Term activities open, usually in mid to late August.

To join OLLI by filling out a "paper form", download the OLLI Membership Application as a PDF. Then print it, fill it out, and send it to OLLI by U.S. Mail to 2401 Plymouth Road, Suite C, Ann Arbor, MI 48105-2193.

Shared Interest Groups (SIGs)

Do you want to organize and facilitate a new SIG that will begin in the fall 2020?  If so, OLLI is ready to receive and evaluate proposals! 

A Shared Interest Group (SIG) at OLLI-UMICH brings together members who have a common interest that they wish to pursue indefinitely within a structure of meetings and activities designed primarily by the members of the group.  A SIG typically strives to develop a sense of community and friendship among its members even as it endeavors to enhance members’ skills, education and experiences.  A SIG is a participatory group in which all members are included in selecting topics to explore and researching information to bring back to the group.  

 Applications for a new SIG to begin in Winter 2022 must be received by the OLLI office by October 1, 2021 in order to be reviewed and approved in time to be included in the Winter/Spring catalog.  Applications and other relevant documents are available below.
