The VC LLI is full for 2018/19 and can no longer accept submissions.

Thank you for your interest in the Vassar College Institute of Lifelong Learning. Please check back in June 2019 for next year's application. Sign up for our email list, or you can email LLI@vassar.edu to be added to the LLI email list. 

We are volunteer-run organization. Our members help manage the organization and its programs by joining committees, helping out with social events, and acting as class producers/managers and presenters. The fees for classes are very reasonable because instructors volunteer their time and classes are usually held on the Vassar campus.

Membership Application 2018-2019

Application process for new members

A certain number of new applicants will be accepted and the application process will be open online from July 15 to July 30. We are aiming for a total enrollment of 250.

All applicants will be informed of their status by early August and, if accepted, will be given a link to pay the tuition and register for classes at that time.

Current members may continue their membership without submitting a new application.   Between June 15 and June 30, they will be sent a link where they can pay their yearly membership fee.
