Life Macomb


LIFE Macomb

L.I.F.E. (Learning Is ForEver) is an organization dedicated to providing high-quality, low-cost, and enjoyable adult-education experiences. The Macomb L.I.F.E. program is affiliated with the national organization,  Road Scholar: Elderhostel Institute Network (EIN) . It is independently administered by area residents who develop the courses, select the teachers, establish the fees, and promote the curriculum. 

NEW REFUND POLICY

Due to a change in policy, PayPal will no longer be refunding the transaction fee when course registration fees are refunded due to canellations. However, depending on who makes the cancellation, there will be instances in which the transaction fee will be refunded. When a course is cancelled by the LIFE Organization or Instructor, the PayPal Transaction Fee will be refunded. When a course is cancelled by the LIFE Registrant, even if the cancellation comes within the 30 Day current cancellation policy deadline, the PayPal Transaction Fee will not be refunded. 

 

It is with heavy heart that our Office announces the following. All Spring 2020 LIFE courses have been cancelled. Right now, the plan is for as many courses as possible to be suspended until the fall semester. The Office will be contacting facilities and instructors to check on their availability.

For further updates, please continue to monitor your email, this website or our Outreach Facebook page.  

Our office will be very minimally staffed until then as well.  Should you have any questions, please email us at outreach@wiu.edu.
