Student Memberships

Stephenville students taking one or more semester hours automatically become Recreation Sports Center members when they register and pay the Recreational Sports fee, which is included in their tuition. Student spouses can now purchase a membership if the student is currently enrolled.

Tarleton Graduate Memberships

The Recreation Sports Center is now offering memberships to our Tarleton State University graduates and their spouses!

Graduate membership fees will be $150 for each long semester, and $75 for the summer months of June and July. Graduate spouse membership fees will be $175 for each long semester, and $75 for the summer months of June and July. Membership requirements include status as a Tarleton graduate, and current membership in the Tarleton Alumni Association. Spouse memberships can be purchased if the Tarleton graduate is an active member of the Recreation Sports Center.

In order to join the Center you need to bring current proof of membership in the Tarleton Alumni Association. To join the Tarleton Alumni Association, please call the Alumni House at 254-968-9682. All graduates will need to purchase an ID card, for a $10 fee, through the Texan Card office (254-968-1880).  Also, a guest parking pass is required to use the parking lots and can be obtained free of charge through the University Parking office (254-968-9001).  The ID card and parking pass can be acquired after you pay for your RSC membership and show them a receipt for proof of payment.

If you would like to enroll for membership, please visit the Recreation Sports Center administrative office anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  For more information about membership and policy issues (e.g. hours of operation, holiday hours, dress code, etc), visit the policies and procedures area of our website.
