Fitness Class Policies and Procedures

During the first week of the academic quarter, Campus Recreation offers FREE Preview Classes. Starting the second week of the quarter, participants will need to use a pass to attend classes. Participants can choose between an unlimited pass, a punch pass, or a drop in pass. Passes do not rollover to the following quarter. Guest/s are not eligible to purchase passes or drop in classes. Exception is during the summer only when class attendance is low. During the academic quarter classes are for members only.
