Become a Graduate Student Affiliate Member of APA
To be an graduate student affiliate member of APA you need to be enrolled in a graduate level program in psychology or another related field.
APA membership is effective Jan. 1 through Dec. 31. If you join APA between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31, you will enjoy membership through the next calendar year.
Graduate students taking courses in psychology are able to take advantage of all APA member benefits at the low rate of $67. Your dues also include membership in the American Psychological Association of Graduate Students (APAGS), a dynamic student-run organization devoted to helping members prepare for their careers.
APA's 54 special interest divisions offer opportunities to network and grow within a specific area of psychology. Division membership is in addition to APA membership. However, most divisions offer free or low-cost membership for first-year members. Learn more about division membership.
