Mid-July Update

Our curriculum committee has been busy preparing for the upcoming September semester. Although the effort is not yet complete, we expect to be able to offer more than fifty classes. About three or four will be on-line Zoom classes; the remaining majority will be our traditional in-person classes. Among the majority will be about eleven completely new classes. Check back here on our home page in early August for a link that will take you to our official on-line catalog.

For the September semester, we will continue our class enrollment via the same Online Registration system we implemented in January. Official online registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 1st. Now that we can meet again in-person, we plan to offer an "Online Registration Tutorial" on Tuesday, August 31st (start time and location will be posted here well in advance). For students who have problems registering online, we will provide enrollment assistance. Information about the assistance process will be posted here in late August.

Our normal 8-week classes will start on September 13th and end on November 5th. Check back here from time to time during the summer for the latest information.

Special Note: Before COVID, our in-person "yellow" registration form included the following request for volunteers:
Would you be willing to lead a CLL course based on your experience or interests? If yes, please indicate below and we will contact you.
We were not able to make this request while offering only Zoom online classes. In anticipation of resuming in-person classes in September, we would like to reinstate the request immediately.
To let us know if you are interested, please e-mail your information to the following address: Curriculum Committee.

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 are available, paying an enrollment fee of $60 establishes membership and entitles students to take up to four CLL classes.
Each additional class beyond four costs $10 each. There is no separate membership fee.
