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. 


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. 



 Spring Registration coming in January!
