How to Register for LLC Courses

You must be a member of LLC to register for classes. Membership is $40 annually. Learn more.

Four times each year, LLC emails a catalog of course offerings for the coming season to all members. It’s also posted here on the website.

The catalog includes descriptions of all courses, what day and time they’ll be held, cost and location. Most in-person courses are given at Temple Beth-El, 70 Orchard Avenue, Providence; other locations are clearly noted. Online courses are offered on Zoom, and we are experimenting with hybrid courses that can be taken either in-person or on Zoom.

It’s wise to decide in advance what course(s) you want to take and be ready to sign up when registration begins online at 9 AM on the Monday one week after the catalog comes out. Class size is limited and many of our courses often fill up on the first day of registration. To avoid disappointment, we suggest that you register early. The online registration includes secure credit card payment.


“LLC is a group of bright and interesting people who come together to teach each other; all the courses are based on collaboration. I joined after retiring – I needed to feel a purpose in my days and encouragement to keep learning. I love the collaboration and the people I meet.”

Chuck Nickles, North Kingstown


RECORDING POLICY. LLC does not permit recording of classes due to the resulting inhibition of free and comfortable exchange of ideas and opinions. Any exceptions must be approved by the LLC President.

PHOTO AND VIDEO PERMISSION. As LLC expands its efforts to attract new members, the Marketing Committee will occasionally seek to gather images and comments of members for use in promotional materials. By registering for an LLC class, you give permission for your image and/or comments to appear in photographs and videos taken during the class, to be used by LLC in any medium, including online and in print. Any photos/videos of in-person or Zoom classes will be made only with advance permission of the course coordinator(s), and videos will be short excerpts only.

REGISTRATION PAYMENT. Registration is accepted online (Visa/MasterCard) through our secure payment portal. Many of our classes fill on the first day of registration. To avoid disappointment, we suggest that you register early.

ENROLLMENT LIMITS. Lifelong Learning Collaborative (LLC) classes are filled on a “first come/first served” basis up to the enrollment limit. Enrollment limits will include coordinators. No exceptions will be made to the enrollment limits.

CLASS WAITING LISTS. A waiting list will be formed after a class fills up. Members will not have to pay the registration fee to be put on the waiting list. If a space becomes available, members on the waiting list will be contacted in order via email giving them the option to register. If the member has in the meantime elected to register for a second choice of class, they may transfer out of that class into the waitlisted class.

REGISTRATION CONFIRMATIONS. Confirmation of registration will be sent by email. If you do not receive confirmation immediately after registering, contact us at [email protected]. We are not responsible for registration errors or registrations that did not submit.

CLASS CANCELLATION. LLC reserves the right to cancel classes with fewer than ten participants. The decision will be made jointly by the coordinator and the Curriculum Committee chair. Those registered in cancelled classes will be given the opportunity to sign up for other classes or to receive a full refund.

WITHDRAWALS FROM A CLASS. If a registrant withdraws from a class for any reason, a refund, minus a $10 administrative fee, will be issued up to one week before the start date of the class. No refunds will be issued after that time unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances. REQUESTS FOR REFUNDS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING (email [email protected]). Refund requests made through the Coordinator(s) will not be honored.

COURSE FEES FOR COORDINATORS. Coordinators do not register or pay for the courses they coordinate. They must, however, be paid members of LLC.

GUEST POLICY. Guests are welcome in LLC classes one time only, with the advance approval of the Coordinator(s). There are no auditors

SEATING ACCOMMODATIONS. We understand that some LLC members may have difficulties with mobility and may use wheelchairs, walkers, or canes, or have difficulty with hearing or vision. Those members should notify the coordinator and arrive early for the first class to discuss what priority seating accommodations can be made.
