  3. Watch the New Member Video at the DMC and learn how to best take advantage of all the resources the DMC has to offer.
  4. After watching the New Member Video you will sign the DMC Member Agreement in order to become a member and use our resources. Full-time enrolled students in KSAS, WSE, and Peabody are eligible for free membership; all other students pay a one-time $50 fee (credit card accepted).
  5. The front desk staffer will confirm and add you to our online reservation system BookIt.
