Program Policies & Guidelines

  • Admission to courses is by faculty approval only. OCDE will contact the faculty member and notify you about whether your course request has been approved or denied.
  • OCDE will submit course requests as soon as possible. However, we cannot guarantee admission by the start of classes. A variety of unavoidable factors may result in Senior Guests beginning a course as late as a week after the official start date.
  • Remember that courses are first and foremost intended to serve the needs of the students who are enrolled for credit. Therefore, we ask that Senior Guests not engage in behaviors that are troublesome or inappropriate. 

Please read the full list of program policies and guidelines below before submitting your registration.
