We are excited to announce a new addition to the Ringling College community, the Lifelong Learning Academy of Sarasota! As a part of the agreement, the Lifelong Learning Academy (LLA) will become the Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy (RCLLA) and be incorporated into our Continuing Studies and Special Programs.
The Lifelong Learning Academy brings over 17 years of expertise serving thousands of students through its distinct learning programs. This partnership will allow us to offer a wider variety of courses and program offerings that will strengthen our adult learning options. The merger will be effective on June 1, 2016.

The Ringling College Lifelong Learning Academy operates year-round and is supported through student registrations and private contributions. RCLLA offers non-credit, university level selected by a curriculum committee primarily on the basis of anticipated student interest, balance with other offerings, instructor qualifications, and fit within the constraints of scheduling, space and finances. There are no grades or tests. Students may attend classes at any of our locations, participate in Einstein’s Circle discussion groups, and attend lectures and special events. We offer four terms per year. Each course lasts for six to eight weeks, and, though there are some variations, most classes meet for one hour and twenty minutes per week.
