For OLLIs with per-course fees: how do you encourage people to register for more classes?

Posted on June 14th, 2012 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Cathy House, OLLI at The University of Utah, Asks OLLI:

For those institutes that charge per-course fees, what methods are you using to encourage people to register for more classes? We currently offer a 10% tuition reduction on two or more courses. We are beginning to think of other methods that would reduce the overhead of processing the discounts –  e.g., an annual rebate program. I would love your insight on what you’ve tried, how it worked, member response/reaction, etc.
