Who is considered a dependent?  

The following family members of students, permanent employees (faculty and staff), temporary and adjunct staff, and retired faculty/staff of Appalachian State University are considered "dependents" and qualify for access:

  • Spouses/domestic partners 
  • Children under 19 years of age living at home
  • Children 19 years or older who qualify as a dependent for federal income tax purposes. (Specifically, this means that the child is currently enrolled as a full-time student.)

Requirements for Facility Access:

  • A dependent must be 18 years or older to be in the facility on their own.
  • A dependent who is less than 18 years of age* will need to have a 18+ year old Parent or Guardian with them at all times.

* This requirement has been updated per App State's Policy 111.1 section 3.1 that defines a minor as any person under the age of 18.
