Employee Membership

All full time and part time Harper employees are eligible to purchase a membership with full access to the Foglia Foundation Health and Recreation Center for $25 per month or $270 per year with no activation or cancellation fee. Bring your Harper ID, a valid government issued ID and a credit card or debit card to sign up for membership. All employee members are required to use their Harper College ID cards to gain access to the Health and Recreation Center.

Note: Contractors, temporary and short term employees are not eligible for the employee rate.

Professional Development Funds for Employee Membership

Harper College has implemented a new employee membership incentive pilot program that begins fall of 2022. Harper employees who receive professional development funds are now eligible to use those funds towards an employee membership at the Foglia Foundation Health and Recreation Center. This opportunity will only be extended to current employees at Harper College and will be available only for a membership at the Health and Recreation Center.  Employees should refer to their current collective bargaining agreement or handbook for the current amount of professional development dollars available.  Reimbursement using professional development dollars for the membership can be made in a one-time annual membership. Learn more.

Employee Payroll Deduction

Harper College benefit eligible faculty and staff are allowed to utilize payroll deduction for their personal membership, household membership and locker rental. Note: Non-benefit eligible employees such as adjunct staff, CE instructors, part-time staff less than 30 hours and contingent employees are not eligible to enroll in payroll deduction; these types of employees are eligible to purchase a monthly membership at the employee rate.

Prorated membership fees for the current month are due up front payable in cash, check or credit card. If you are registering after the 20th of the month, you must pay the current month plus next month up front. All payroll deduction authorization forms will be processed for following month (1st paycheck) per the following timelines:

Payroll activation deadline for following month — 20th of the current month
Payroll termination deadline for the following month — 20th of the current month
