You can register online, mail in the registration form from the catalog, or call us to register at 845-565-2076.

These courses are taught by L.I.F.E. members, Mount faculty, or volunteers from the community. Because instructors volunteer their time, fees for courses are very reasonable. With a membership fee of $15 per trimester, full length courses (4 or more sessions) are $30 each and shorter courses are never more than $20.

Courses are on a wide variety of subjects and differ greatly from session to session. Check back here for our brochures, which are published three times per year.
