Admission to the Center is based upon a valid C-SC ID or Group Fitness ID Card/Registration. Student membership is paid through a unified fee, and assessed at the beginning of each school term. Employee membership is part of their benefit package or Emeritus status. Please note that group exercise classes and special events are separate and require separate registration. That registration may be subject to a fee or deposit. Employee families/dependents are permitted to use the facility. However, all individuals must be identified on the employee’s electronic registration form.
