Printable Hints & Step-By-Step Instructions
Each document is in pdf format.
You must be a current member in order to register online.
Contact the OLLI office to purchase your 2014 membership at least a day before you plan to register for classes.
Regular annual membership in UAF-OLLI costs $35 per person. This is your most economical choice if you plan to take fewer than 10 OLLI courses in calendar year 2014 (including both spring and fall). You will pay $15 for each class you take.
Unlimited membership combines membership ($35) with unlimited classes for calendar year 2014 ($150), for a total cost of $185. This is your most economical choice if you plan to take more than 10 OLLI courses in calendar year 2014.
We outgrew our old registration system, which required OLLI staff to manually enter every individual class registration.
In our new system, class placement is first-come, first-served. You'll know right away whether you got into the classes you wanted, and you can choose whether or not to join a waitlist for classes that are full.
Unfortunately, as of mid-August, we still do not have online payment by credit card available for our Fall 2014 registration. We apologize for the inconvenience. So, for now:
Select the "Pay Later" option when you register online.
ProClass is not able to remove references to credit cards from their site. If you don't click "Pay Later" it is possible to reach a screen that gives you spaces to enter your credit card information. If you do so, your card will NOT be charged. The credit card information you enter will be secure -- OLLI staff won't even be able to access it. You'll still need to either call the OLLI office with your credit card information or mail us a check.
The big problem is that if you do not get all the "Pay Later" buttons selected, your registrations will NOT go through.
How to Log In
You can browse the course offerings without being logged in, but you'll need to log in when you actually register.
Navigating the new OLLI ProClass Website: Searching for classes and registering
Searching for Classes
You must pick a "semester" from the drop-down menu. For fall, courses are organized online with separate "semesters" for Session I and Session II, to make it easier for people to browse for courses that meet in a particular time frame.
Choosing one "Topic" from the drop-down list will narrow your search. You can also try choosing an "Instructor". If you choose BOTH a topic and an instructor, it will look for a course that is labeled with that topic AND is taught by that instructor. We recommend searching by topic, leaving instructor as "any."
We only have "Courses," so leave the default mark in that space. If you try clicking "Bundles" you won't get any results.
Once you've selected your search parameters using one or more of the drop-down menus, click the "Search" button.
After you click "Register," you'll see this screen. Click in the box beside the names of the people you wish to register in this class.
Note that if you have a family account with two or more OLLI members, you can register both people for the same class at the same time by checking both boxes. If you are the only contact on your account, there will be only one name shown, but you still have to check the box.
NOTE: The system checks for time conflicts. If you try to register for two classes that overlap in time, it will give you an error message when you try to complete your registration, and it will give you a chance to remove one of the classes to avoid the conflict. If you have already completed registration for one or more classes, the system will not let you register or join the wait list for any class that has a time conflict with your previous registrations, so don't complete your registration until you're sure you want those classes.
You now have a course in "Pending Registrations."
If you want to add more courses, click "Search for more courses" to repeat the procedure of finding and registering for a class. When you are done, click "Complete my registration."
The ProClass system will hold courses as "pending" for TEN MINUTES. If you haven't completed your registration within 10 minutes, it will release your space in your pending class(es) and you'll have to start over. So, note the time, and be sure to move on to "Complete Registration" before your 10 minutes are up. If you need to, split your registrations into two or more batches so you won't go over 10 minutes.
Confirm Courses: Select "Pay Later"
The default option on this screen is "Full" (i.e. pay now) but the credit card function doesn't work yet so you must click "Pay Later." Then click the "continue" button to finish.
You can either mail us a check or call the OLLI office to pay with your credit card. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are told that the online credit card payment function will be available to us sometime in March.
When you reach this screen, you have successfully completed your registration. Your account balance due to OLLI is shown in red at the bottom.
The registrations listed will ONLY show the class(es) you registered for just now, not previous registrations. We recommend clicking the link to get a printable record to keep.
Payment: Wait until Aug. 21 or later
