Lifetime Learning Institute

Welcome to the Lifetime Learning Institute of the State University of New York at New Paltz

We offer stimulating and fun, non-credit, non-competitive courses for adults 55 years and older. Our courses are offered each fall and spring semester in four or eight-week formats. Wednesday courses are typically offered on the SUNY New Paltz campus and Friday courses are offered in and around New Paltz, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved our classes to an online learning format using ZOOM. We intend to transition back to in-person classes as soon as possible.

We are happy to announce the addition of a new Winter Session 2022. For current members, this just added more value to your yearly membership. For new members, you can join for the spring, and it will include the Winter and Spring Sessions. Click on the CATALOG link on the left panel to view the offerings. Use the HOW TO JOIN link to register and join.
