Eligibility

Students

Currently enrolled CPTC students who pay Service & Activities (S&A) Fees or have an applicable waiver approved by CPTC and are currently taking classes are eligible to access the center at no charge. 

Beginning October 29, NWCTHS students who are not enrolled in any additional CPTC college classes are eligible for a complimentary Fitness Center membership.

The following student classifications are not eligible for complimentary access to the fitness center because they do not pay S&A Fees and must pay $30/quarter:

  • Outside programs, agencies, workforce training and contracts (i.e. INVISTA)
  • Continuing education classes
  • Transitional studies (i.e. ABE, ESL & GED)

CPTC students who would like to pay $30/quarter to access the Fitness Center should first visit the Student Leadership & Service Center so we can verify your enrollment status before being directed to the Cashiers Window to pay the quarterly fee.
