Part-time university employees do not have the option of payroll deduction and will pay per semester. Members who join prior to or during a semester will have their fees prorated.

    Membership duration for a semester begins the first day of classes and ends the first day of classes the following semester. For example, fall semester membership: begins the first day of classes in the fall semester and ends the first day of classes in the spring semester.
