Membership can be sold to the spouse even if the ID holder does not wish to purchase a membership for him or herself, or currently is a student. Spouses must present the ID holder’s ID card if making the purchase themselves. When adding spouse and dependent children ages 14-23 to a faculty/staff membership, family members will receive a 25 percent discount as the second or more users. If the faculty/staff member does not purchase a membership, the spouse and dependent child aged 14-23 will pay the full membership rate.

This means either the ID holder or spouse must have or purchase a membership for the Student Life Center before a dependent membership can be sold for the Student Life Center.
