MEMBERSHIP Categories and Pricing
We offer various types of memberships to accommodate the community. Find which one works for you:
Currently enrolled A&M-Commerce students who have paid the Rec Sports Fee are automatically members of Campus Recreation. Students are only members for the current semester they are paying activity fees or have purchased a membership. Those students who would like to use the facility during the summer who are not enrolled in each summer session will need to purchase a membership at the student rate. Certain academic programs are not charged the Rec Sports Fee and therefore do not receive automatic access. Those wishing to purchase a membership will be assessed the student fee price.
Current faculty and staff must present their Lion Card when purchasing a membership. Membership at the price of $110 thanks to the President’s Discount.

Current faculty/staff must be a permanent, full-time employee to take advantage of payroll deduction. Temporary employees are not eligible.
