Take a University of Washington course this summer with no grades, no papers and no tests but plenty of learning.

There’s also no prerequisite of a college degree, but there is one catch. You must be 50 or older.

UW is offering Osher Lifelong Learning Institute classes at Everett Station, 3100 Smith St., including Disease in Modern Society, History of Physics, History of Washington State and Signs and Symbols of 16th Century Art — all fun stuff taught by current and retired UW faculty and community experts.

A number of Osher courses also are offered on the UW campus and locations in downtown Seattle and Redmond.

You can read about all the classes at www.osher. washington.edu. or attend an information meeting at 4 p.m. Thursday in the Weyerhaeuser Room at Everett Station.

A fee of $20 covers each course, and an annual membership fee of $125 covers unlimited Osher Lifelong Learning Institute classes each quarter.
