Membership Options

Campus Recreation offers two types of membership options.

Traditional Option

The traditional option follows the academic calendar. Membership fees are paid upon enrollment and in full. Midway through each semester membership rates are reduced to a prorated amount.

Payroll Deduction Option

The second membership option involves payroll deduction. This option is available year-round to those issued a Faculty/Staff i-card. Members who enroll in payroll deduction remain active members until they notify Campus Recreation to cancel membership via the payroll deduction cancellation form (this notification must be at least 30 days in advance). Employees who elect the payroll deduction option must agree to participate for a minimum of four months.

The monthly or biweekly deduction is based on the annual membership fee for faculty/staff. The current deduction amount is $40 monthly and $20 biweekly. Each August, the membership rate is subject to change. Members will receive email notification by July 1 if the new membership rates increase.
