What are the benefits of membership?

  • Free admission to all monthly lectures
  • Discounts on classes, trips and events

What does membership cost?

The cost of membership depends upon the semester in which you join. Membership is $45 in the fall, $25 in the spring, and $15 in the summer. Membership will pay for itself if you participate in 3 or more classes.

When does my membership expire?

All memberships in Lifelong Learning expire on July 31, regardless of when someone joins. We want to keep overhead low and the program affordable, so it is easier for Lifelong Learning bookkeeping to have all memberships expire on the same date. To be fair, the cost of membership is based on the semester in which a person registers. Membership costs the most in the fall semester, less in the spring semester, and is least expensive in the summer semester.

Am I eligible for free membership?

Lifelong Learning offers free memberships to the following groups:

  • Lourdes University alumni, staff and faculty
  • Lifelong Learning instructors

Occasionally Lifelong Learning partners with other organizations to offer a semester of free membership to their constituents.
