Classes for Adults With Inquiring Minds

At Sierra College, we believe learning is a lifetime pursuit. That's why we've developed our Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Sierra College is a unique learning community for lifelong learners age 50 and up who are eager to explore traditional and new areas of knowledge – without test or grades. Although these classes are designed for adults age 50 and over, there is no age limit for enrollment. Any adult student is welcome!

Membership in OLLI at Sierra College is required to participate in the full range of offerings; however, we do offer noncredit, tuition-free classes also. We have a wide variety of classes in art, film, health, history, literature, music and science.

Sierra College is one of only four community colleges nationally to receive a grant from The Bernard Osher Foundation. There are 120 Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes (OLLIs) spanning all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Each is a part of a college or university and is funded in part by The Bernard Osher Foundation. The Sierra College OLLI is over 15 years old and offers over 150 classes annually for more than 3000 students.

Join us today and keep your mind and body active and you’ll maintain your quality of life, today and in the future.

Designed with Your Needs in Mind

We know your needs and interests are different from those of a traditional college student. We've designed our classes in short modules. To fit into your busy lifestyle, we offer classes that meet for just one class meeting or once a week for two, four or six weeks. No previous educational background is necessary, just a desire and an interest to learn or experience something new.

High-Quality Curriculum and Instruction

All classes have been approved by the Sierra College OLLI Curriculum Committee and are taught by experienced faculty.
At Sierra College you can:

  • Explore new interests
  • Renew old interests
  • Gain new friends
  • Practice new skills

Take advantage of this opportunity to expand your horizons, right in your own backyard! Enroll in OLLI at Sierra College today. For more information call (916) 781-6290 or 1-800-242-4004 extension 6290 or email olli@sierracollege.edu.
