Joining the Club

To Join

For Students: Due to COVID19 precautions, we are operating at reduce capacity and are only accepting new sign-ups for student memberships. Please fill out the Spring 2022 membership form if you are interested in joining the club or renewing your membership. WAC waterfront access fees are waived for full-time Seattle campus students. Students that are enrolled part-time or attend UW Bothell or UW Tacoma do not qualify for this waiver.

For Non-Students: WYC Membership is always available to UW students. Unfortunately, there is a non-student wait-list, which you can join by filling out the waitlist survey (link). For more information, please contact the program director. A $50 WAC waterfront access fee is also required unless you pay for a full IMA membership.

As a student organization, we cannot exceed a ratio of two students for every one non-student member. Most available non-student memberships go to graduating students who have taught lessons for at least two years as students.
