West Virginia University will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. Anyone needing a disability related accommodation to participate in the Lifetime Activities Program should contact Stephanie Martin at 304-293-0859.

Late fees/registration deadlines

We encourage everyone to register early. Anyone registering after class begins will be charged a $10.00 late fee. Stansbury Fitness Center Membership is the only program that has pro-rated fees and ongoing registration with no late fees.

Absences from classes

Due to class size and skill levels, participants are not allowed to attend a different class in order to make up an absence.


Registration in a class does not automatically reserve the right to a refund. If the Lifetime Activities Program cancels a class for any reason, a full or pro-rated refund will be issued to the participant. Full refunds will not be made unless classes are cancelled due to insufficient enrollment or extenuating circumstances on a case by case basis. No refunds will be made due to scheduling conflicts, on the part of the participant. A $25 processing fee, per class enrolled, will be charged for all other refunds at the discretion of the Lifetime Activities Program Director if the request is made at least 10 days prior to the start of the class. No refunds or credits will be issued for participant withdrawal after the start of the class. To cancel a registration for class you must contact the office at 304-293-0859 or email lifetimeactivities@mail.wvu.edu.



The Lifetime Activities Program reserves the right to cancel a class if the minimum enrollment is not reached; to make changes in course dates or times; to substitute instructors when necessary due to emergencies or unforeseen circumstances. If a class/course is cancelled by the Lifetime Activities Program, you will receive a refund and/or a make-up session. Currently registered participants will be contacted via email in the event of scheduling changes. If your class is cancelled, you will be notified no later than the day prior to the scheduled start date. Cancellation information can always be found on the web site.


Please consult your physician before beginning any exercise regimen. WVU accepts no responsibility for treatment of injuries other than rendering immediate first aid. The College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences, and the Lifetime Activities Program make every effort to ensure that our classes are safe and properly supervised. LAP classes are activity based, which by their nature presents the possibility of injury.

Physician’s health permits are required before participation in some designated classes. All health/medical information is kept confidential and valid for one year from date of issue. Instructors reserve the right to require a health permit on an individual basis.

No one will be allowed on the pool deck unless enrolled in class. Children are not permitted in pool observation areas without an adult present.

Inclement Weather

Lifetime Activities classes will be cancelled when there is a state of emergency during class times, or WVU has canceled. Classes will not be canceled when Monongalia County Schools cancels unless WVU has also canceled. University cancellations can be found on WVU and LAP cancellations can be found at Lifetime Activities . Cancellations are often announced on WAJR and WVAQ radio stations, along with the Lifetime Activities Facebook Page. Make up classes will be added to the end of the session for weather related cancellations.
