Individuals enrolled full-time at a college, university, or other educational institutions are eligible for Student Membership with proof of status. We realize circumstances occur when an individual may not be enrolled full-time as a student, however, if the primary intention of the individual is education, student membership is allowed.
To join, complete an online membership application or fax/mail a Membership Application with payment. Immediately after payment is accepted, students must complete the process by providing proof of their student status; any of the methods listed below are acceptable:
Current semester schedule showing number of credits
Transcript (official or unofficial) with number of current credits
University letter stating "student" status
University Web site page indicating the date and "student" status
Valid and current Student ID card
The proof of student status can be faxed, emailed as an attachment, or mailed to ISPE's Member Services.
Students residing in an Emerging Economy country receive a discount on dues by paying US $5 or €5 through the local ISPE Affiliate or Chapter. Please contact the local ISPE Affiliate/Chapter in your area for complete details.
Existing Student Members may extend their Student Membership for one year following graduation. Exceptional educational programs, unique networking opportunities, and the promise of developing professional relationships with ISPE Members prove to be invaluable tools when it comes to landing a job. Finding a job often is about "who you know" and ISPE offers students access to a vast network of potential employers.
Each Student Chapter is sponsored by its local ISPE Affiliate or Chapter, which provides valuable support in the form of Industry Advisors to mentor students.
An ISPE Student Chapter brings the following benefits to your university:
Access to the latest technology and industry trends from professionals around the world
Opportunities to develop collaborative student projects between academia and industry professionals
Opportunities to partner with Student Chapters in other countries for global networking and information exchange
ISPE honorary membership for Faculty Advisors
