Now celebrating our 28th year!
First, Happy New Year to all our past students and potential future students. The year 2020 is one that most of us would be happy to forget. Let's hope that 2021 will be much better for all of us.
Many of you may have nostalgic memories of the social interactions when you were able to register for classes in-person. However, we think you will appreciate the features of our new online course enrollment program. Actually, when the COVID virus is gone, we should also be able to offer in-person enrollment for students who need assistance.
In the meantime, we want to provide you with information that will help you master the new online program. You will find it useful to view
Courses that lists the January 2021 courses. We recommend you make your selections using this tool, so that when you go to the Online Registration page, you already "know" what you want.
To register, you will need to create a secure personal account. A helpful web page,
CLL-Reg-Preview, lists the steps to create an account. The information in the CLL-Reg-Preview page is also shown on the left half of the registration form that will become active on January 5th. Still more help is available via a 12-minute CLL video,
Registration Details that we highly recommend.
CLL Online Registration is now Active

We are aware that you are not able to register at the present time if you are using a Safari browser. We're working on the problem. For now, you will need to use either an Edge, Chrome, or Firefox browser on a PC.

— COVID Restriction —
Although volunteers may be in the CLL office during the above times to intercept e-mail on the office computer,
they will not open the office for any in-person interactions with students, nor take any registrations by phone.
If you have difficulties, send us a message with your phone number and a brief note about the problem. We will attempt to help you. Note
—remember that very few classes have any real limitation on attendance numbers this session. If you should run into problems, don't panic
—we'll get to you as soon as our "all volunteer Help Crew"
can manage. We're all learning the ropes together this session, so thanks in advance for your patience. (See added Notes below.
(From start to finish, the registration process requires multiple steps.)

• You must
complete this whole step in order to attend each class.
• You do not need a Zoom account or Zoom app to attend our CLL zoom classes.
(Don't confuse the word, "Zoom," in this step with the course whose title is "Zoom." You don't need to enroll in the "Zoom" course to take any of the other classes.
We ask that you please complete registration by Close of Business on Friday, January 8th. That said, the Online Registration system will remain open for at least 3 weeks. If you register after January 8th, there is no penalty; however, you may experience a slight delay in receiving the ZOOM-Registration-Links
e-mails for your chosen courses.
What is the CLL (Center for Life Long Learning)?
Established in 1993 on the University of West Florida campus in Ft. Walton Beach, FL, the CLL provides interesting and stimulating educational activities for persons who believe that learning never ends. In addition to educational classes, the CLL organizes other activities that include local social events and occasional out-of-town trips.
Our organization is a Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) and we are affiliated with the
Road Scholar. There are more than 400 siimlar LLIs across the country.
Unlike most LLIs, the CLL has no paid staff; all our class leaders are volunteers who have acquired their expertise through their lifelong career experiences or favorite hobbies.
In 2004, our organization was incorporated as a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt charity.
During normal times, when in-person classes were available, paying an enrollment fee of $60 established membership and entitled students to take up to four CLL classes.
Each additional class beyond four costs $10 each. There is no separate membership fee.
In January 2021 we are only able to offer on-line Zoom classes during which members may take up to six classes for the basic fee.
