How can I prepare for registration?

There are three steps to prepare for registration:

  1. Pay your 2024 Membership Dues! Dues must be paid BEFORE you register for courses; it cannot be done at the same time as registration. 
  2. Make sure you have your username/password. If you do not have those, email and we can reply with your username and steps to create a new password. 
  3. Write down a list of courses you'd like to take. Keep track of the ID's and Titles of courses you'd like to take. This will allow you to quickly search for courses.

Registration Information

How will registration work?

When registration opens, an email notice will go to Osher at CMU members announcing that they can register for courses! If you have not paid your 2024 membership, you will not be able to register right away; the courses are set to unlock for those who have a 2024 membership.

Please note: If you do not receive/have unsubscribed from our Weekly Essentials Emails, you will not get this email. The notice goes out through the same system. Please contact the Osher staff for help.

Is Registration Open Now?

No, registration is NOT open for Spring 2024! We expect it to open mid-December.

Registration Fees

The registration fee for members is $60.00. This fee allows you to take an unlimited number of courses. Some courses have an additional fee.

If I signed up for Zoom courses, when will I recieve the meeting ID and password for each course?

Zoom codes will be sent with your 7-day reminders! Please make sure you hold onto those emails. If your register within 7 days of your course beginning, you'll receive the codes in your confirmation emails. 

Materials Fee

Materials fees are due at the time of registration unless otherwise stated. Where indicated, materials fees are non-refundable. Should you not be admitted to a course, your prepaid fee will be made into an electronic voucher (credit).

Confirmation Emails

As you are registered, a "confirmation of class registration" will be automatically emailed to you for each course you are enrolled in. Should a course not be listed, it means that you are on the waiting list for which you will receive a waitlist email. You will be notified via email if and when you are enrolled in a waitlisted class. Please do not attend any classes for which you do not have a confirmation.

Adding and Dropping Courses

To add a course(s) after registering, please either go online to do so, or email the office at If you want to drop a course, complete the form at, Quick Links, click on "Drop my Course" button. This is especially important to do early for courses with a waiting list so another member can attend. 

IMPORTANT: You must receive a course confirmation in order to attend a course. A course confirmation is not the same as a waiting list notice.

Waiting Lists

If you encounter a course that has a limited number of participants, we encourage you to add you name to the waiting list. There are a few courses that will have a limited number of participants to ensure the highest quality for the course. If you become unavailable, please remove your name from the waiting list by signing into you account, click "Go to Dashboard", click on "My Waiting List" tab, and remove the course.
