  • This semester, we are introducing online enrollment. Just go to www.extension.uci.edu/olli and click on Enroll Online Now. You can also call or mail in your registration (see your Spring catalog or the website for more information). For those of you who tried to register online first thing Tuesday morning, there was a small technological glitch. We apologize to those of you who had difficulty. The problem was quickly fixed, and as of this morning, more than 90 OLLI members have registered online, receiving immediate confirmation of their Spring courses.
