Course Catalog

Each fall and spring semester, IU Lifelong Learning brings to you a new catalog of courses from which to choose.

The Fall Course Catalog is online around the beginning of August, and the Winter/Spring Course Catalog is available online in early December.

A printed version of the catalog is published in late August and early January, respectively. Contact us at if you would like to receive our catalogs by mail.

Status of Lifelong Learning classes in light of COVID-19

Our highest priority is the health and safety of our attendees and staff. As we look forward to events in the coming weeks and months, we are, of course, focusing on the potential threat of COVID-19. We are closely monitoring the situation through a number of sources, including, which details IU’s response.

At this time, we have decided to cancel all classes in our Spring 2020 Lifelong Learning semester, except for our two GRE courses, which will be taught online.

We will notify you via email or another appropriate method and provide you with either a full refund, credit for a future course, or options for rescheduling, if available. Lifelong Learning course participants who withdraw up to seven days before the first class meeting will receive a full refund of their registration fee unless otherwise noted. Participants can choose a course credit to be used next academic year—Aug 2020–June 2021— instead of a refund.
