Recurring Monthly Payments

Our recurring monthly credit card/payroll deduction program is designed to be a convenience for our Campus Affiliate, Alumni, and Retiree members. Details and requirements for the program are below. If you have additional questions, please email us prior to making your purchase.

What is the recurring monthly membership/locker/pass and how does it work?

The recurring monthly membership/locker/pass is paid by credit card or payroll deduction. Your credit card will be charged at the time of purchase for a prorated amount of the remaining days in the current month. Your credit card/paycheck will then be charged each month until you cancel. One automatic renewal charge is required before cancellation.

What can I purchase using this payment option?

Campus Recreation memberships, lockers, and group fitness passes may be purchased using recurring monthly credit card/payroll deduction payments.

When will I see the charge posted to my credit card statement?

You should see the monthly charge posted to your credit card statement between the first and tenth day of each month. If you purchase multiple items such as a locker, membership, and group fitness pass, these will show as three separate payments on your monthly statement. You will see a deduction from your UNL paycheck at the end of the month.

Will I receive a receipt each month?

Our system does not automatically send receipts. If you need one for insurance purposes, please email us. Our staff can provide a document showing all of your monthly recurring payments.

Is it secure?

Yes. A secure token is saved in our payment processing system so the credit card can be charged each month. We do not have access to your credit card information.

How do I enroll in the recurring monthly membership/locker/pass?

Campus Affiliates may enroll in person at any of our member services welcome desks. Please review the eligibility requirements on our memberships page.

How often do I have to renew?

All items purchased using the monthly recurring payment option have no end date. Items will be automatically renewed until you have submitted a cancellation form.

How do I cancel this payment option?

Monthly recurring payments are non-refundable/non-transferable.

After initial enrollment, one automatic billing charge is required before cancellation. After the first automatic billing charge, cancellations received by the last day of the current month will not be charged for the following month. For example, if you enroll on December 1 but wish to cancel at the end of December, you will be required to pay the January automatic billing charge, and your membership will continue through January. You may then cancel anytime in January to end all future charges.

All cancellations must be submitted using the Monthly Recurring Cancellation Form.

Who do I contact with questions regarding my monthly recurring membership?

Members can contact our member services team via email.
