OLLI Registration Quick Guide

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) provides non-credit short courses, study trips, and special events for adults aged 50+.

To register for OLLI courses you must have a Brickyard Account. This is an email account that has been registered in the REPORTER system. If you have registered with OLLI previously, you will have a Brickyard Account. If this is your first time registering for an OLLI course, you will need to create a new Brickyard Account.

How to Setup Your New Brickyard Account: 

  1. From the REPORTER home page (go.ncsu.edu/reporter), find the Login section.
  2. In this section, select the option to Create New Account
    Screenshot of the log in page, including the unity log in and Brickyard log in. Create new account is highlighted and shows users where to click to create their new brickyard account.
  3. Provide the required information, including your name, email address, and phone number. Filling in this information now will help prevent any problems when you register for OLLI courses.
  4. Then you will select Create Account which will bring you to a page confirming your account creation and linking you back to the login page.

You will use this email and password to log into your Brickyard account when registering for OLLI courses.

Please note: You only have to purchase your OLLI membership once per year. If you have already purchased your annual OLLI membership online or by phone, you do not need to add an OLLI membership to your order. If you are a new participant, or your OLLI membership has expired, you must purchase an OLLI membership to register.

If you are NOT a current OLLI member you will receive an error message. You will be able to add the OLLI membership and try again.

  1. Check I have read and agree to the registration policies under each course you are registering for to confirm that you agree to the registration policies, then click Proceed to Order Summary.
  2. Select I will pay now with a credit card in the payment option drop down menu.

    This images highlights the text underneath "I will pay now with a credit card". The text "Apply payment type to all cart items" must be selected.
  4. Click the Checkout button. You will be guided through our secure payment processor screens to confirm your total, enter your credit card information and confirm your payment. 
  5. Once your registration is complete, you will return to the Order Summary page. You can now sign out or close your REPORTER window.

Once you have registered for an OLLI course, you will then receive three emails from REPORTER that are related to your registration: your registration confirmation, your order summary, and a receipt for your payment. Please keep these emails for your records. If you do not receive any of these emails, please check your spam folder.

Pay special attention to your registration confirmation email, it will contain information about the course you have registered for.
