Membership at the Foster Recreation Center is open to all Missouri State students, faculty, staff, active alumni, University affiliates and household members at varying rates.
Membership Types and Rates
Current students who pay full student services fees each semester will automatically be members of the center at no additional cost.
Students who do not pay full student services fees, including those taking only intersession classes, iCourses, Internet classes and courses taught in any location other than the Springfield campus, will owe additional fees based on number of credit hours taken each semester.
Former students who paid for the center
Graduates of MSU enrolled at the Springfield Missouri State campus between Fall 2007 and Summer 2012 who paid the FRC phased-in student fees will receive credit toward a membership. One full student service fee assessed during this time period equals a four month membership credit.
This membership option, once started, is continuous. You will be unable to stop and start in another semester. Fees paid may be forfeited for a one time Day Pass (including use of the climbing wall or group fitness) to the FRC. This membership option expires 7-31-2016.
