News Alerts: 6/5/2020 update
The ILR Office is closed due to coronavirus restrictions.
Online membership renewal is now available: If you have not changed your address or contact information, you may renew your membership online at this link: Renew Your Membership Online
Mail-in membership renewal is available by accessing 2020-21 renewal form under the "Current Forms & Flyers" tab.
New Member forms are available under the "Current Forms & Flyers" tab above. (New members may not join online.)
Please Note : Effective June 1, 2020, a $10 Annual Mail Fee will be applied to any household requesting to receive the quarterly class schedule by Mail. (If two members share a household, one $10 fee is applied.) There is no fee to receive the quarterly class schedule by email or to access it on this website.
If you renew your membership using the form (under Current Forms & Flyers tab) AND you mark the "Mail" option to receive quarterly schedules, please add $10 to the total renewal amount. (Single renewal w/Mail option - $20 + $10= $30; Joint renewal w/Mail option - $20 + $20 + $10 = $50)
If you renew your membership online, you will see the separate payment option for the Annual Mail Fee. Payment will require a separate credit card transaction. If you are renewing for a Joint Membership, ONLY ONE Mail Fee is needed. (If an Annual Mail Fee is not chosen & paid, you will automatically receive the Quarterly Class Schedules by email.)
2020 Summer Quarter is being planned. We are awaiting information from TCC regarding when we can resume classes.
Introducing ILR at TCC
The Institute for Learning in Retirement is a group of active seniors who are committed to life-long learning. Based at the Virginia Beach campus of Tidewater Community College, we enjoy intellectually stimulating lectures, discussion groups, social events, and trips.
For a yearly membership fee you will receive a quarterly schedule of our programs and events. Classes, trips, discussion groups, and socials require registration and payment. Read more to see if joining ILR might enrich your retirement life as well.
Anyone age 55 or older is welcome to join without regard to race, creed, color, or gender. Read***** more about our organization.
Find your way around
Members are finding the campus easy to navigate, thanks to the helpful guards in Lots 1 and 2 and our reserved parking section marked by red cones.
Check the schedule of classes and join your friends at TCC. Remember that most but not all classes will be in the Pungo Building (F). Our business office is in the Princess Anne Building (A), which is near the flags and dolphin sculpture.
