Membership & Registration

JOINING OUR PROGRAM

Dartmouth College/DHMC staff, faculty, and students please call 603-646-0154 to join our program.

You can join us online at any time, whether you are joining for the first time or renewing an existing or past membership! Click on the 'Sign Up' button to create an account.

Our program is open to everyone, regardless of age or educational background. Our only requirement is payment of our annual membership fee, and a desire to explore, engage, and excite yourself with new experiences! Members may enroll in any OSHER@Dartmouth course they wish, and will receive first notice of upcoming lectures and events. Membership will often qualify you for a special discounted price on many of our special trips and workshops.

Active memberships will complete their cycle this coming June 30, at which point they must be renewed in order for a member to continue participation. Membership is obtained on an individual basis; we do not currently offer family or group rates.

Current Costs

  • Annual Membership: $70 (valid July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018)

  • Courses (4 weeks or less): $40
  • Courses (5-6 weeks): $60

CURRENT MEMBERS

Register For Classes and Events

If you wish to register for a course or event, simply click on the 'Account Login' button. You will be taken to our online registration site, where you will usually need to search for the class or event you wish to register for in the 'Semester' search box. Classes will usually be listed under their relevant term (such as Fall 2018 or Spring 2019), while events may be listed as a Special Lecture, Special Meeting, or similar category. In order to register, you will need to know your username and password.

Refund Policy

Participants may request or receive a refund of their course fees for the following reasons:

  • If a course is cancelled by OSHER@Dartmouth or the instructor(s), registrants will receive a full refund of their course fee.
  • Members who withdraw from a course at least 14 days prior to its first session will receive a refund of their course fee minus a $10.00 administrative fee for each dropped course.
  • Members who withdraw from a course less than 14 days prior to its first session are not eligible to receive a refund of course fees or special fees related to the course.**
  • Please contact the office via phone or e-mail to withdraw from a course, as this function may not be available via your online registration account.

**An exception to this policy may be made if the member's health will prevent participation in their course. In such cases, a refund request must be submitted in writing to the Osher office. A $10.00 administrative fee per course will be applied to this type of refund request.

Renewing Your Membership

Our online registration system currently recognizes only one member of any family as the primary contact for that household. This means that only one person in each household can establish or renew a membership for all members of his or her household. This status is granted to the first person who received a registration account in any household.

To find out if you have the ability to manage memberships for your household, log in to the online registration site with your username and password. If a 'Select Membership' option appears in the menu at the top of your account screen, you are recognized as the managing party for your household. If that option doesn't appear, log out and let your partner log in to their account to perform the same steps.

NEW FOR 2017: If you and your partner/spouse both wish to renew your memberships during the same fiscal year, please select a 'Household' membership instead of 'Individual' memberships. Only one Individual membership is allowed per household; if you select Individual and your partner/spouse wishes to join later in the same fiscal year, you will have to contact the office to update membership status for your household. This only applies to shared or household accounts - individual accounts will not experience this situation.

Membership renewals for any given year are not confirmed until your payment has processed.

Logging In To Your Account

Current and past members of our program ALREADY HAVE A USERNAME AND PASSWORD! If you were a member as of December 2013, or had a membership with our program prior to that, our system automatically created an account for you when the new system was activated. PLEASE CHECK WITH THE OSHER@Dartmouth OFFICE BEFORE OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT! If you have forgotten your username and/or password, simply visit the registration page and click the 'Forgot your password?' link in the box on the upper right of the screen. You'll be prompted to enter the e-mail account you have on file with our office. The registration system will send you a reminder via e-mail; this message may sometimes be diverted to your Spam or Junk mail folder.

Keep Accounts Separate

Please DO NOT register for classes under your spouse's account! You will exceed the staff's ability to resolve the numerous complications that result from this action. If you are having trouble with registration, please CALL THE OFFICE!
