Full Time Students

Undergraduate students enrolled in at least 12 credit hours are automatic members of the HRC during the current semester they are enrolled.  Fees are paid via the student activity fee. Note:  If full-time students are enrolled for BOTH the fall and spring terms, the student will have access to the HRC throughout the following summer, until Aug 1 of that year.  If students are NOT enrolled full-time for both semesters, the student must purchase a summer membership as a part-time student would be required to do.

Graduate and Part Time Students

Students enrolled in graduate classes or undergraduate students enrolled in less than 12 hours need to purchase memberships.  Graduate and part-time students do not pay the activity fee that pays for HRC membership, thus they are required to pay out-of-pocket.

Faculty and Staff

All faculty and staff employed by the university.  Verification of current Faculty and Staff Butler University I.D. is necessary to join.  Faculty and staff members can elect for payroll deduction if an annual membership is purchased.  All faculty and staff members are eligible for a $200 Wellness Stipend.
