Between Semesters Message

Our January semester has ended and our curriculum committee has begun working on classes for the upcoming September semester. Unlike the past semester when we could only offer Zoom online classes, we expect to be able to offer most of our classes in person.

Looking ahead to the September semester, we will continue our class enrollment via the same Online Registration system we implemented in January. Now that we can meet again, we plan to offer an in-person "Online Registration Tutorial" on Tuesday, August 31st (start time and location will be provided later this summer). Official online registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 1st. During the first week of registration, to help all our users enroll successfully, we will have volunteers in our CLL office to answer questions by phone.

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.
