Fall 2020 Updates and Registration

Changes for the Fall 2020 Semester


Fall 2020 Policies

Guest Policy

Due to current circumstances, no guest passes will be issued during the fall semester. We look forward to welcoming guests to our in-person offerings in the spring 2021 semester if the global health climate allows it.

Emergency Cancellation Policy

If the Osher Institute must cancel an offering, members will be notified by email no later than 90 minutes before class time. Please note: If Boise State University closes, the Osher Institute will also close.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

To cancel your enrollment in an offering, please call Customer Services at
(208) 426-1709. Refunds for fee-based offerings, less a $10 administrative fee per offering, are available until fourteen (14) days prior to the offering’s start date. Refunds are not available after that deadline. See offering descriptions for special cancellation policies. Membership fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
