Washtenaw Community College Emeritus Program

SASC WCC Fitness Class Policy 


SASC hosts Line Dance, Strength Conditioning, Tai Chi and Yoga classes through the Washtenaw Community College (WCC) Emeritus Program. The Emeritus Program is funded by a County millage and is a supporting benefit to the community. The instructors are WCC independent contractors.


These classes are in high demand and we want to be fair and allow as many people to participate as possible. We also aim to facilitate a smooth registration process, provide a positive experience, and to make the process equitable for new members, those newly 65, or those just learning about WCC classes. The lottery process will continue to be used, please see our policies below.


  • Policy

    • Must be 65 or older and live in Washtenaw County.

    • One free class per person, per session.

      • If a class has openings remaining a week prior to the start date, then those already enrolled may register for an additional class.

    • Sign-ups for the WCC Spring session will begin the week of March 2, 2020.

    • Sign-up sheets will be available before and after current WCC classes and outside of class times in the office, or you may call by phone.
