CCAL has two catalogs each year:   The Winter/Spring catalog is published in October and covers courses offered from January through May.  The Summer/Fall catalog is published in March and covers courses offered from June through December.  Our Curriculum Committee has successfully endeavored to strike a balance between the humanities, arts, sciences and social sciences.

The membership fee for each calendar year (January 1 to December 31) is $120 and you can join at any time.  We also have a partial membership: for $60 you can take a total of four courses per calendar year.  At any time you may upgrade from partial to full membership.  Please note that your membership must be paid in full before your name can be placed on a class roster.  


All course registrations must be made by mail, FAX, e-mail or in person at the Office.  We cannot take course requests over the telephone.

  • All Course Request Forms will be held until the deadline dates:
    ♦  November 15 for Winter courses
    ♦  January 15 for Spring courses
    ♦  April 15 for Summer courses
    ♦  July 15 for Fall courses

When the deadline date is reached, the class lists are created based on priority numbers, NOT by when the form is received.  It is very important that you put your courses on the Course Request Form in your PERSONAL PRIORITY order.

  • If a course maximum is reached, all remaining requests will go on a waiting list in the order of their priority number.
  • Any requests received after the deadline date will be placed on the class roster/waiting list as class size permits.
  • Members will be notified of their course enrollment within 2-3 weeks of the deadline date for each session.


On occasion there are changes in the scheduling of our courses after the catalog has been printed.  Participants will be notified if courses are cancelled for unforeseen reasons.

Two weeks prior to each class you will receive an updated class list serving as a reminder.  Any changes to the date, time or location of the class will be noted on this list. Please review class lists for these changes.

 If the Oneonta City School District is closed due to weather, all CCAL courses for that day will be cancelled and the CCAL Office will be closed.
