Important Membership Information

APSA Departmental Memberships run yearly from July 1st to June 30th of the following year. APSA memberships cannot be prorated.

APSA does not accept purchase orders.

Becoming an APSA Departmental Member does not confer individual memberships to faculty or staff nor does it give individual access to any online individual member benefits. Faculty or staff can purchase individual memberships separately. Please see here for information on individual membership dues.

Departmental accounts are accessed through linking an individual APSA account to the departmental account.  Once the individual logs into their individual account they will now have access to the departmental account.

In order to establish a new link to a departmental account please contact member services at 202-483-2515 or dsp@apsanet.org.


APSA Refund Policy: Membership may be cancelled by contacting the APSA membership department by e-mail at membership@apsanet.org or by mail; however, APSA does not offer refunds for cancelled memberships.
