A half-price discount is offered to WMU students, and senior citizens (55 or above). WMU employees may participate in any class at no cost.

Western Michigan University's main campus offers metered parking spaces in most of its lots for use by guests; faculty, staff and student are required to have a parking pass and to park in the area of the lots designated by their pass. There is no "free" parking on campus. Meters accept only quarters and change machines are offered in some of the lots.
