-Punch cards and class fees can be paid for by check, cash or money order.
-Punch cards are valid for one calendar year, expiring on December 31 of that year. However, the following year's punch cards will be sold beginning mid-November and can be used for classes that fall semester beginning on the date they are sold.
-Class participants must have the card punched by the Recreational Services staff worker or class instructor on-site before or after each class.

-Punch cards are the property of Emory University, and may be confiscated for misuse and must be surrendered upon demand.
-Each class has a limit on the number of participants. Classes are on a first-come first-serve basis. If you arrive after a class is full, you cannot participate in that class.
-If a class is consistently attended by a low number of participants, Recreational Services reserves the right to cancel the class without notice and at any time.
-The class schedule, as well as class times, locations and instructors, are subject to change without notice.~ Recreational Services will post signs regarding any changes in the published schedule.

-The Fitness Emory schedule may or may not change from semester to semester during an academic school year.
-During the summer there are a reduced number of classes, and class times may be adjusted due to the shortened WPEC building hours.

To successfully change the schedule or add a class:
a. There must be sufficient interest from current Emory students and/or Woodruff P.E. Center members in the proposed schedule changes or class additions, and
b. The proposed changes/additions are deemed, by the Recreational Services staff, to be in the best interest of the Fitness Emory program, and
c. The proposed changes/additions are feasible with consideration to existing classes, and instructor & facility space availability.
If all the above criteria are met, the changes or additions may take place within the current semester, otherwise they will take place the following semester.
