How do I determine what kind of membership I am eligible for?
If you are currently a full-time student, you are eligible for a student membership. In order to complete your application for student membership, you must send us proof of your full-time status. Acceptable documentation includes: a dated receipt for your current semester of classes; a dated official bonafide student certificate; OR a student ID that displays a date for the current semester. If you are a part-time student, your membership category depends on how many years you have been practicing design: two years or fewer means you are eligible for an associate membership; more than three years puts you at the professional level. Part-time students are not eligible for the student membership category. If you are a full-time design faculty member, you are eligible for Professional or Associate membership. If you are a practicing designer, your number of years of practice will determine whether you can apply for Professional membership or Associate membership. If you are not a designer but are related like an ethnographer, design manager, brand manager, organization head, business head, model maker, marketing and sales of design services, technical support, Engineering or Print expert, vendor of design related products & software, design writer, media, you may apply for Affiliate membership.
