Generally, ILR courses are offered twice a year - a Spring semester from late March to early June and a Fall semester from late September to early December. Usually held during the daytime on weekdays, there are a few courses that meet on Saturdays. Intersession courses may be offered in the Summer or Winter if there are interesting and timely events for our members.  Paper catalogs will be mailed to active members and course offerings can be viewed online by clicking the Register Online button above. 

For non-online classes when offered, ILR uses various venues throughout the New Haven area. We have many venues as individual locations offer different classroom configurations in size, audio/visual and computer equipment best suited to the course being presented. Class sizes are based on instructors' preferences and on available classroom capacities. Also, having multiple locations to attend courses ensures that members can find courses of interest near their home.

Fees vary, depending on the number of classes per course and cost of materials used in that course. Fees are shown on the registration page for each course so members are aware of the fees and materials costs for the course they select.

Courses can be viewed by clicking the Register Online button above. In order to register for a course, however, you must be a current Member of ILR with annual dues paid up to date. New and renewing memberships can also be purchased using the Register Online button or by clicking on the Become a Member page on the Membership website tab
