The ILR office staff opens the office from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on day available
The office is closed for ODU holidays and public school closings.
Members register for classes using the registration form sent out quarterly. No registrations are taken over the phone.
The registration form requires the following tasks:
The administrators process registration forms in the order received. Registrations for a class that is full are placed on the class waiting list.
THE WAITING LIST
Members are encouraged to make their class selections and return their registration forms promptly to prevent being “wait listed.” A waiting list is maintained for all classes and social/travel events when the registrations exceed the program's capacity. The waiting list is based on the principle of “first listed, first served.”
INCOMPLETE REGISTRATION FORMS
The processing of incomplete forms is a time-consuming and burdensome job. Please assist us by making sure your membership and registration forms are accurate and complete. Remember to include the “tear-off” information strips for activities.
Members always have priority to attend any of our functions. Guests are welcome if space is available. If an activity becomes full, guests will be removed to make space for members. Call the office to check. The applicable class or activity fee must be paid for the guest.
If a member cancels a program at least 4 days in advance, he or she will receive a refund voucher (minus a $2 administrative fee).
If ILR cancels a class, the members will receive a full refund voucher for a class.
Old Dominion University and ODU Virginia Beach Higher Education Center follow a common inclement weather closing policy. ILR must cancel events held at the VBHEC when the university is closed.
If there is a 1-2 hour delayed opening, any ILR morning class is cancelled, but any afternoon classes will go on, unless we notify members by phone and/or email.
CLOSING AND DELAY INFORMATION
For up-to-date ODU closing and delay information:
A name tag is issued to all members. We request that you wear it to all class meetings and special events. It is useful for meeting new friends. You may fill out the back of the card indicating any health information in the event of an emergency.
