How to determine if you have SRC access

Access to the SRC is included in tuition for all currently enrolled undergraduate students. If you are an undergraduate student, not enrolled for the fall semester, and it has been less than one year since your last enrollment, then you can activate your SRC membership for $90.

SRC access for graduate students is determined by enrollment fees paid for the semester/session. If you were not charged the enrollment fee (graduate students), then you can activate your SRC membership for $90. That process can be completed by coming to our main office Monday through Friday from  8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For questions please call (269) 387-3115 or visit our SRC access page
