Payroll deduction and recurring membership cancellation must be submitted by 5 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month that you would like your deductions or installments to stop. If your cancellation is not submitted by 5 p.m. on the first Tuesday of the month, your cancellation will go into effect the following month.

Campus Closure Policy

If the university cancels academic classes or closes campus, we will likely cancel all recreational programming and close certain facilities, etc. Efforts will be made to reschedule canceled classes/activities once the campus reopens.
