Instructional Programs Policies

Registration Information

Register online, through the app, or in person for classes, phone registrations are not accepted. Payment is accepted via cash, check, or credit card. Registration deadline is three days prior to class start date. Late registrations are not prorated. All full-time DePaul undergraduate students and current members qualify for the member fee; all other individuals are subject to the non-member fee. See below policies for Blue members. Registration is only valid for the specific section. Participants may not attend other classes for which they are not currently registered, even to make up missed classes.

Blue Member Policies

To receive the member rate for instructional programs, the program must take place during blue membership access hours. The non-member rate will be charged for all program registrations outside of blue access hours.

Non-Member Policies

Non-members are required to show their class access card at the front desk prior to each class to gain entry into the facility. Non-members failing to show a current class access card may be denied entry into the facility and thus forfeit class attendance and registration fees. If registration is not done in person, non-members should pick up their access card during Membership Services hours prior to the first class.

Non-members must comply with all posted facility policies. Registration for an Instructional Program entitles a non-member to participate in the class in which he/she is registered and use of the equipment and facilities associated with the class during the scheduled class time only. Non-members are permitted to access the facility 15 minutes prior to class start time and are expected to exit the facility 15 minutes after class ends. Class instruction and use of facilities and/or equipment apply to the registrant only.

All children participating in our instructional programs must be accompanied by an adult at all times. A parent or guardian must remain with their children until the beginning of their class and must be present the moment the class finishes to retrieve their child from the instructor. At no time can a child be left in any part of our facility without adult supervision. Parents are not allowed in the studios while classes are taking place. Non-member parents and guardians may wait in the atrium during their child's class time. Parents and siblings may be allowed on the pool deck during Learn to Swim programs with instructor approval. A non-member found in violation of facility policies may be denied further entrance to the facility and forfeit class registration.

Class Appropriateness

Please enroll in the appropriate class based on skill level and age. Ask the instructor if you are unsure of what level is best for you or your child. Campus Recreation reserves the right to cancel your class registration, with a pro-rated refund, if you have registered for an inappropriate level.

Cancellation and Refund Policies

Campus Recreation has the right to cancel any instructional class with insufficient enrollment. If your class is canceled by Campus Recreation or you withdraw from a class three days before it’s begin date, you will receive a full refund. If you withdraw from a class 24 hours before the second class meeting, you will receive a refund of 75% the enrollment fee. No refunds are given after the second class unless in the event of a physician-verified illness or injury. Applications for a refund must be done in person at Membership Services.

Children Policies

Children must be supervised at all times. A parent or designated adult must stay in the facility while his or her child is participating in a Campus Recreation program. Parents should escort children to their program areas as well as quietly and appropriately supervise siblings who are not in programs. Use of the assisted change locker room is encouraged and patrons should see a building manager if the changing room is locked. Towels are available for participant use, please use a maximum of two towels per participant and return towels to bins located outside the locker rooms or at the equipment issue area. Patrons found in violation of children policies may be denied further entrance to the facility and forfeit class registration.
