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. This includes free membership for all first time members of ACSD from non-faith-based organizations.

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, you are 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.

If you are unsure about your membership status, please contact ACSD Membership ( ).

How do I get my login and password information?

Once the online membership form is submitted, a receipt including login and password information will be issued to the e-mail provided on the membership form.

Why can’t I log in to the ACSD website?

Members must login to the ACSD website to access member only resources. Your log in will still work each year, but access to member only resources will only work if your membership is active/renewed each year. If you are not a current member or your membership has not been renewed, please visit the Membership page at and submit the online membership form. Login and password information will be sent to the email included on the form. If you are a current member and unable to access the website with your login and password, please contact ACSD Membership ( ) or the ACSD Webmaster ( ).

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

Not at this time. Membership fees are paid with the submission of each individual membership form.

Will I receive a receipt for my membership fee online payment?

Once the online membership form is submitted, a receipt will be issued to the e-mail provided on the membership payment page. If you use a different email to pay than what you registered with, check the email used for payment
