Welcome to the Cannon Valley Elder Collegium

Courses for the Spring term are now listed on this website, and registration will begin on Monday, February 12. Please use the drop-down menu for “Spring 2024 Courses and Descriptions” under “Classes” above to see the full descriptions of the Spring courses and the biographies of the instructors. You may register for a course online, or by a paper form by mail available through the newsletter or through a downloadable form.

All Spring registrations received by March 4, 2024, will be treated as arriving at the same time. That means that all registrations received by that date will have an equal chance of getting into a course that is over-subscribed. If registrations received by March 4 exceed the enrollment limit for a course, random selection will determine those who will be enrolled. Anyone who is not enrolled in an over-filled course will be offered registration in another course or a refund.

Registration for open courses after March 4 will continue on a first-come, space-available basis until after the second meeting of a class. For a detailed explanation of our registration rules, see “Registration Process” under the “Classes” heading.

We are excited about the courses offered this Spring, and we hope that you will find at least one that will grab your attention!

CVEC Covid Policy for Winter Term: CVEC continues to require Covid vaccinations and boosters for all persons attending in-person classes. However, at this time CVEC does not require that masks be worn by students or instructors, and none of our class venues is requiring masks. Therefore, we anticipate that there will be no masking requirements for Winter 2024.

Of course, any student is welcome to wear a mask at any time or at all times. However, if any student should request that all other students in a class wear masks, there is no expectation that those other students will comply with that request. In classroom settings, it’s difficult to hear people speaking when they wear masks. Therefore, people who would prefer that the entire class wear masks are advised to consider one of our Zoom classes.
