Registration

All first time members must complete a New Member Packet prior to using the Pitney Bowes Foundation Wellness Center.

The Wellness Center is free for all NCC faculty, staff, students, Lifetime Learners, security, cleaning, and cafeteria personnel. You must have an affiliation with the college to use our facilities. Currently, we do not offer community memberships. Registration to use the Wellness Center entails submitting a completed New Member Packet.

All first-time members must complete a new member packet prior to using the Pitney Bowes Foundation Wellness Center. This packet is available at the front desk in the Wellness Center and can also be downloaded by clicking on the link above. The first page of this document is a medical form called the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q). All medical information provided is kept confidential and locked in our front office. It is asked that this form be honestly and completely filled out on both sides. The PAR-Q must be renewed every three years and qualified professional staff reserve the right to request medical clearance if deemed appropriate. Those patrons who require medical clearance cannot use the facility until clearance is received and processed. The second page requires signing off on our mandatory rules and regulations for facility usage.

Use of the Facility

All patrons must present a valid NCC photo identification card (with barcode) upon entry of the facility. Each NCC ID Card must also have a current semester sticker. ID cards and stickers can only be obtained from Security, located in the Atrium of the East Campus.

NOTE: Lifetime learners must present their LLI Membership Card and a photo ID. If a person does not appear on the LLI membership list provided to the Wellness Center, they will not be allowed to use the facility. The Wellness Center is not responsible for LLI membership verification.
