Membership Information

Membership for the spring 2019 semester begins January 2. Your registration receipt, membership card and parking permit (if purchased) will be mailed after registration is complete. Members are invited to the luncheon and exclusive CLR events, receive a discounted YMCA membership and a 10% discount at the Market at DelVal! Sign up for the Market rewards card by visiting any cashier with your CLR membership card and earn reward points. CLR members are always welcome to purchase lunch at the Levin Dining Hall for $9.

CLR members may purchase parking permits along with their registration. Cars parked on campus without a placard or parked in reserved spaced will be ticketed.


If the DelVal campus is closed or delayed because of weather or other emergency, an announcement will be made on the radio and television, the main campus number (215.345.1500),, through the e2Campus* text alert system and our social media pages. We ask that you refrain from calling Public Safety. e2Campus is a digital alert system that notifies individuals in the event of an emergency or disaster. In the event of an emergency, a text message is sent out to any registered cell phone and email address; students are alerted immediately of any threat or condition on campus, including inclement weather. To sign up for e2Campus alerts, go to

NEW POLICY as of spring 2019: If DelVal is closed or delayed due to weather or other emergencies, all CLR classes for that day are canceled. Classes canceled due to weather, instructor illness or other events will not be rescheduled. This policy is in effect for all CLR classes, registration, special events and programs.
