  2. Beginning at 9:00pm, all patrons, including those already in the building, will need to present their SEBTS ID Card to the front desk

  3. Guests will only be allowed in Ledford after 9:00pm with an ID-carrying sponsor and must be accompanied by their sponsor at all times

  4. Guests will also need to present a picture ID (such as a driver’s license) to the front desk

For more information on the Late Night Policy, see our blog post detailing the policy, or visit the Ledford front desk. 

Definition of Guest:

A guest is anyone who wants to utilize the Ledford Center recreation facilities only and is not a SEBTS or The College at Southeastern student, faculty, staff, alumni or the immediate family of one of these people. Guests may fully utilize the facilities as long as their sponsor is with them at all times.

Sponsoring a Guest:

A guest may be checked in by a student, faculty member, staff, alumni or immediate family of these people who are at least 18 years old and has a current school ID. When a person checks in a guest, they become that guest’s sponsor. A sponsor cannot check in more than 2 guests at a time, no one under 18 can check in a guest. Before utilizing the facilities, all guests must be checked in by their sponsor at the front desk through the Ledford Center Sign-In Program.

Sponsor Responsibilities:

  1. The sponsor must bring their guest(s) to the front desk and sign them in.
  2. The sponsor is responsible for all of their guests’ actions including language, conduct, and proper use of equipment and/or facility.
  3. The sponsor must remain with their guests at all times.
  4. When the sponsor leaves the Ledford Center he/she must bring their guest(s) to the front desk to check them out.


For various reasons, guests are often in the building utilizing the facilities without being checked in. If they have a sponsor, both they and the sponsor need to check-in at the Front Desk immediately. If a person does not have a sponsor, he/she will be asked to leave. To qualify for guest privileges, a guest must have a sponsor with them already, not look around the Ledford Center for someone who will sponsor them.
