Student Memberships

Students and Spouse/Partners

Full-Time student membership fees are included in tuition for those paying into the student activity fees. A full-time Undergraduate Student is defined as someone taking 12 credits or more during the semester and six credits or more in the summer. A full-time Graduate Student is defined as someone taking nine credits or more during the semester and six credits or more in the summer. Benefit-eligible faculty and staff on a fee waiver are not eligible for student memberships. For more information see the Faculty/Staff membership type.

Part-Time student membership fees are partially subsidized by tuition for those paying into the student activity fees. Undergraduate Students taking less than 12 credits or less than six credits in the summer are considered part time. Graduate Students taking less than nine credits during the semester or less than six credits in the summer are considered part time.

Spouse/Partner – The Spouse/Partner of any current member is eligible to purchase a membership. The current member must be affiliated with Boise State and carry a current membership. Spouse/Partners can be added to an existing membership at any time.

Boise State Community – this category includes faculty, staff, associates/affiliates and those recognized by the University with emeritus status.

Friends of Boise State – this category includes current members of the Boise State Alumni Association, The President’s Circle and Varsity B.

Students not paying into the activity fee – The Student Recreation Center is funded through a combination of student fees and other membership revenue.  Full-time students (12+ credits) paying into semester activity fees gain access to the Rec without paying any additional fees for membership.  Part-time students paying into semester activity fees are eligible to purchase a part-time student membership.

Any student that is of full time or part time status that does not pay fees or is part of an Alternative Fee Program can gain access to the Rec by purchasing a membership that correlates best with the membership category to which they belong.  For example, a faculty/staff member that is taking classes on a fee waiver is eligible to purchase a Boise State Community Membership at that rate.  Seniors, and others do not pay activity fees may fall into either the Boise State Community or Friends of Boise State category, depending on their affiliation to the university.  Student enrolled in an Alternative Fee Program may purchase a “student other” membership for any semester they are enrolled.
