Membership Rates


All current NDSU students, staff, faculty and approved affiliated businesses including recent alumni are eligible to join the NDSU Wellness Center.  Members may also sponsor others as part of the membership benefits.

Staff/faculty may sign up for a membership online on the Wellness Center Web Portal or at the Customer Service Desk.


Currently enrolled NDSU students have their membership included with a wellness fee paid with tuition each semester. Students need to be enrolled for at least one credit.  Enrolled students can access their membership by signing the waiver of liability each school year and maintaining a course load. Students must bring their NDSU ID for each visit to the facility.

  • New students do not have access to the Wellness Center until the first day of the semester they are enrolled in.
  • Tri-College students and employees on tuition waiver do not qualify for this membership.
  • Disregarding the length of the class/classes being taken (four, eight or twelve-week session), students paying for summer semester student fees have membership access for the entire summer.

Summer Semester Non-enrolled Students

Students not enrolled for the summer semester, but enrolled for the fall semester may purchase a summer membership for $125 at the Customer Service Desk. Students wanting to purchase a summer membership must verify their fall enrollment by providing a printed fall schedule under the course enrollment page.

  • These students must verify enrollment for the fall semester before they will be allowed to purchase the summer membership and must sign a waiver for the summer semester.
  • Incoming students are eligible for this membership. Class registration or an NDSU acceptance letter is acceptable for verification.


Currently employed NDSU staff/faculty or retired employees with an appropriate retired NDSU ID are eligible to purchase a membership at the Wellness Center.
