Full and part-time students automatically become members simply by paying tuition and fees.

A Fitness Center operational fee* of $20 per student/per quarter is included in full and part-time tuition fees. No additional payment is required. 

Full and part time students can start using the Gym & Fitness Center once they have registered for classes at the beginning of each quarter. Students must check-in at the Fitness Center front desk and show student ID.

*Operational fee revenue is used to support general operational expenses including staffing costs, goods and supplies for the facility, and maintenance of the equipment. For more information about the fee please see Fee Facts at the bottom of this page.

Fee Fact #1

  Cheaper than a gym membership

Each quarter is approximately three months, so dividing the quarterly fee by three works out to just $6.67 per month (approximately the cost of a cup of coffee and a doughnut). This is substantially less than any other fitness facility in the area.

Fee Fact #2

  Convenient operating hours

The Center is open from 6 am to 7 pm. Monday through Thursday, from 6 am to 3 pm on Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 5 pm on Saturday (hours are subject to change based on demand).

Fee Fact #3

  Non fee-paying students

Students who do not pay fees (such as those enrolled in ABE and ESL) can use the Center if they pay the equivalent of the quarterly fee.

Fee Fact #4

  Faculty & staff fee

Faculty and Staff who want to use the Center will pay at least as much as the student fee.

Fee Fact #5

$$  Excess revenue

Any revenue collected through operational fees in excess of $300,000 per year will be applied toward the loan LCC took out to pay for construction costs (supported through a Fitness Center construction fee passed by students several years ago).

Fee Fact #6

  Student representation

There will be three student representatives on the College’s Fitness Center Advisory Committee to ensure that student voices are heard regarding operation of the Center.

Fee Fact #7

$$  Financial Aid eligibility

Student fees, including the proposed Fitness Center fee, are covered by Financial Aid for eligible students. Any membership costs paid separately (not included in student fees) would have to be paid out-of-pocket.
