Frequently Asked Questions

1. I am a current Dartmouth Fitness member, how will the Dartmouth Fitness Membership wellness program option work for me?

If you elect this wellness program option, you will receive the value of the Basic membership for free when you renew your membership in July. If you choose to upgrade to a Plus level membership, you will be responsible for covering the difference in cost.

2. I am not a current Dartmouth Fitness member, how will the Dartmouth Fitness Membership wellness program option work for me?

If you elect this wellness program option you will receive the value of the basic membership for free at the time of membership purchase (membership begins July 1). If you choose to upgrade to a Plus level membership, you will be responsible for covering the difference in cost. If you choose to purchase a membership prior to July 1, you are responsible for paying the cost of your membership through June 30. This benefit apples only to memberships beginning between July 1 - December 31.

3. Can I use the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option towards the cost of a locker at Alumni Gym?

No, lockers are not included in this benefit. If you would like to purchase a locker, you will be responsible for covering the cost.

4. Can I use the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option towards the cost of FLIP classes?

No, FLIP classes are not included in the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option.  However, if you elect the Fitness Reimbursement Benefit as your wellness program option, you may use this towards FLIP class fees. 

5. Why does the Dartmouth Fitness Membership not begin until July 1?

Since Dartmouth Fitness Memberships run on a fiscal year basis, with all memberships beginning on July 1, this benefit is not available for use until July 1. If you decide to purchase a partial year membership prior to July 1, you will be responsible for covering the cost of that membership. When you go to renew your membership for July 1, you would then receive the value of a free basic level membership at time of renewal.

6. If I have a spouse enrolled on my medical plan, are they also eligible for the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option?

No. The Dartmouth Fitness Membership option is available for active employees only.

7. Is the Dartmouth Fitness Membership option considered taxable income?

Yes, this benefit is considered taxable income and applicable taxes will be withheld from payroll.

8. Can I change wellness program options mid-year?

No, once a wellness program option has been elected, no changes or exceptions will be made. Active benefits eligible employees will be able to change their elections on an annual basis during Open Enrollment (October/November). Any elections made during open enrollment will be effective January 1 of the following calendar year (with the Dartmouth Fitness membership effective July 1).

9. Does Dartmouth College have discounted membership rates at any local fitness facilities?

Not at this time.  However, if you are a Cigna member, you may be able to receive discounted membership rates through our Cigna partnership.  Click here to learn more.
