The ACSD membership fee is $50 per individual.

Is there an institutional membership?

Can I pay for my whole team’s membership fees at once?

This is not an available feature. Membership fees are paid with the submission of each individual membership form.

Am I eligible for membership if I have interest in the field of student development but am not currently in a student development position?

Yes. ACSD welcomes individuals who are pursuing a role or share an interest in the field of student development.

Am I eligible for membership if I work in a non-faith-based college or university?

Yes. ACSD is eager to provide a place of encouragement, support, and professional development for Christians working in student development roles at public colleges and universities. Student development professionals from non-faith-based institutions are invited to join ACSD at no cost for a first time membership.  Contact for more information PRIOR to filling out the membership form.

How can I find out if I am a current member?

Once simple way to determine if you membership is current is to go to one of the member only pages.  If you can view the member only content, your membership is current.  One example is to click on "CAREERS" - if the only drop down menu item you see is "Job Board" and no other option, you are either not logged in or if logged in, not a current member.
