Student members are required to provide verification of their current full-time student status to the NSCA Membership Department within 30 days of becoming a student member or of renewing a student membership.
The NSCA Student Verification Form is required to for all student memberships, whether the member is new or renewing. Students must have the form signed by an advisor, the Dean of their department, or a staff member in the registrar's office. Please note that scanned copies of the form are acceptable and the form only needs to be signed by the school/program's representative and not the student themselves.
Transcripts are not an acceptable form of verification, they are a requirement for the CSCS and CSPS certification exams only.
Use one of these options to send your student verification:
You may submit the signed Student Verification Form on or before August 1 to be eligible for student membership during the summer.
Students are given discounts on membership and conferences. In order to justify giving students these discounts, the NSCA has developed a policy regarding who qualifies and how they must prove their student status.
