Senior Citizen Education Programs

Degree Program

CSULB is pleased to continue its Senior Citizen Education Program, which began in 1976. This program allows eligible California residents who are 60 years or older to register for classes at a reduced cost.

If you apply to the University through this program, you are subject to all regular admissions deadlines and restrictions and will be required to submit official transcripts in order to pursue a degree, credential or certificate. You will also be subject to University policies and procedures, and in order to continue in the program, you must remain in good academic standing.

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at CSULB (Formerly Senior University)

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at CSULB (OLLI) is a non-profit center in the College of Health & Human Services that provides low-cost educational opportunities to adults 50 years of age or older. There are no tests or homework required, and no degrees earned. Classes are taken for members' personal enrichment and for the sheer joy of lifelong learning.

Our mission is to provide quality educational opportunities for older adults by offering a broad spectrum of courses, ranging from Art, Philosophy, Opera and Bridge, to Spanish, Estate Planning, Yoga, and Science. We have a ten-seat computer lab that offers classes ranging from basic applications such as Word, Quicken, and the Internet, to more advanced courses such as the XP Operating System, Digital Photography, and Photoshop Elements.

Please visit our website for more information, or contact the OLLI office at (562) 985-8237 for current course information and to be added to our mailing list.
