SIU Student

Students enrolled in at least 6 credit hours of on-campus classes for Fall and Spring Semesters and 3 credit hours of on-campus classes for Summer are charged the General Student Fee, which includes the use of the SIU Student Recreation Center. 

Students enrolled in only online classes for the current semester are charged the General Student Off-Campus fee, which does not include use of the Rec Center.

Students who do not meet the minimum on-campus class requirements listed above can elect to purchase a semester membership at Member Services located on the lower level of the Student Recreation Center.

To find out if you are paying the on-campus General Student Fee, view the "charges" section of your Bursar Bill.

If you have any further questions regarding this, please contact the Bursar’s Office.
