American Planning Association – Free Membership for Students

Students join free, first-timers save big

APA membership is now free to all full- and part-time students actively enrolled or matriculated in any university or college degree program (not just planning) for the duration of their studies. And, when students complete their studies, they are entitled to two years of reduced dues to bridge the gap between learning and earning.

First-time members also qualify for discounted introductory dues. Please pass the news about our special offer for new members to friends and colleagues who have never joined APA but would benefit from membership.

APA designed this new membership structure to encourage students and other new members — from both planning and non-planning backgrounds — to join and stay with APA, making us a stronger and more diverse association.
