UF Students and Memberships

UF Students and Memberships

Membership is included with A&S fees paid by most UF students

Activity and Service fees (A&S fees) paid by students when registering for classes provide the majority of funding for the Department of Recreational Sports.  Students who pay A&S fees are granted membership for that semester. 

Classifications of UF Students that do not pay A&S fees and require purchase of Membership

Students who do not pay A&S fees require Membership for access to certain services (outlined below).  Membership rates and access policies are established to protect the interests of fee-paying students. These classifications include:

  • Innovation Academy Students (during Fall semester)
  • Students enrolled in certain Distance Education programs that do not pay A&S fees
  • UF students who are not currently enrolled in classes (membership can be purchased for one semester immediately following the semester in which the student was last enrolled and paid A&S fees)
  • Newly Admitted Applicants are defined by the University of Florida as recently admitted traditional students who have yet to attend or register for courses at UF.
  • Newly Admitted UF Online Applicants are defined by the University of Florida as recently admitted degree-seeking UF Online students who have yet to attend or register for UF Online courses.
