Mindfulness Based Congnitive Therapy has been canceled due to technical difficulites with the display of videos which are an integral part of the course. It is anticipated this course will be offered in a later semester.
Aging and the Brain has been rescheduled. It will now meet on 4 Tuesdays, March 23 through April 6, at 3:00-4:00 pm.
STILL TIME TO REGISTER
The Academy for Lifelong Learning's Spring Term has begun but there are still many classes that have not started yet so there's still plenty of time to register.
The Curriculum Committee has put together an array of twenty-six courses that should appeal to a wide range of interests. The Academy continues to offer most courses for both in-class and online participants.
The Academy Spring 2021 catalog may be downloaded from our CATALOG PAGE.
The Academy catalog is also included as a section of the combined UofSC Aiken Continuing Education catalog that may be picked up at the Continuing Education Office, Business and Education Building, Room 111.
Registration is now in progress. See our REGISTER PAGE for details.
Classes Began Friday January 15 with additional courses beginning throughout the term. The final class session is Tuesday May 4.
In-class enrollment and seat spacing are being managed to comply with government and University Covid-19 guidelines. Students on campus are required to comply with all University requirements, including maintaining social distancing and the wearing of face masks where specified.
Those wishing to avoid face-to-face contact can register to attend most Academy classes online in real time via the internet. Those unable to register for in-class courses because in-class registration has reached its capacity may also register with the Online option to avoid being shut out.
Online participation is via Microsoft Teams. For instructions on using Microsoft Teams (PDF format}, click on these links: General Info, Apple Info).
Line Dancing will be held in the B&E Gym, Room 200. March 15 session is canceled.
Aging and the Brain New dates and time: 4 Tuesdays Mar 23 - Apr 6, 3:00-4:00 pm
In addition, several classes have been moved to larger rooms to accomodate higher than anticipated in-class enrollments.
See the Catalog Update page for all changes.
