Where are classes held?

  • Our schedule includes courses held online and in-person 
  • In-person classes this semester will be held in South, Central, and North Berkshire County. See listings below for locations.

Most courses held online are recorded so if you miss one, or your schedule doesn't work for a particular course, you can access the recordings and watch the class sessions on your own time. Note: in-person classes are not recorded.

Course Fees

We are making some changes to course fees, for the summer only, that will accommodate offering one registration for all summer courses (rather than two separate semesters in recent years). Some folks will experience a small increase, but most will pay the same or less than they did over two summer semesters in previous years.

The course costs for Summer 2024 will be:

1 course - $55
2 courses –$100
3 courses - $125
4 or more courses - $150

Each Flexpass counts as one course.

(Note: you need to be an OLLI at BCC member to register for courses. Membership information can be found here.)
