Rec Center Membership Update for Current Closure
Annual or Academic
If you have a current prepaid Annual or Academic Rec Center membership that was active on March 16th, 2020 it will be extended by the number of days that the Rec Center is closed.
Membership and Payroll Deduction
If you have a Rec Center membership that you pay for with payroll deduction, all deductions for Rec Center memberships will be stopped on the April 10, 2020 paycheck (you will still see a deduction on your March 25, 2020 paycheck as you pay for your use of the Rec Center from March 1-15 via this paycheck). Payroll Deduction Memberships will re-activate when the Rec Center re-opens and deductions will begin accordingly per the payroll schedule.
