As defined by the Department of Campus Recreation, for the purpose of accessing the
Student Recreation Center, a dependent status exists anywhere there is a parent or
legal guardian/child relationship. The member will be asked to provide evidence that
this relationship exists at the time he/she completes the dependent waiver form. Member
will be charged for membership for up to two dependents. After two, additional dependents
will be free of charge.

*Direct supervision is defined as being in the same room no further than 20 feet apart.
Parent/guardian MUST be actively participating in the same activity as the dependent,
e.g. playing basketball together, playing racquetball together, swimming together,
etc. This does not mean, for example, that the parent can be in a group exercise class
while the dependent sits along the wall and watches.
**Indirect supervision is defined as parent/legal guardian being in the facility at
the same time as the dependent; however, both are not required to be in the same area.
