Choosing a Member Category
See the full list of options, including eligibility requirements on the Rates and Categories webpage.
We expanded this category to include the first three years of practice so as long as you’ll be in your second or third year of practice beginning in August/September 2023, you’re eligible to renew under this expanded Early Career category.
We now only have one Early Career membership that was expanded to include the first three years of practice to allow more time before someone needs to pay regular dues. It used to be that you chose one of two options depending on whether you were in your first or second year of practice.
The Graduate Student membership is open to international students who are in a program equivalent to a US-based school psychology program. We do not send print mailings to international addresses but all of your other benefits would be the same as other graduate student members.
We modified the International membership to include Canadian members. Please note, we no longer mail to addresses outside of the United States however you will continue to receive CQ, SPR, and all other benefits digitally.
The Associate membership was renamed to Allied Professional.
The Common Address membership is only available to a school psychologist who shares a residential address with a current NASP Regular member and does not wish to receive duplicate copies of NASP publications.
NASP memberships are offered to individual school psychologists, graduate students, and allied professionals; there are no group memberships.
We are not currently offering an option to pay your dues in three installments. Enrollment closed on June 20 at 8:00 p.m. ET. We anticipate offering this again in the spring of 2024.
We honor VISA, MasterCard, money orders, and personal checks as forms of payment. We are unable to accept purchase orders for membership dues unless accompanied by a check and current membership application.
Dues are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal tax purposes. Dues may be partially deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue code, such as trade or business expenses. The portion of your dues payment that supports lobbying efforts, 0.65%, is not deductible. Donations to the Education and Research Trust, a 501(c)(3) organization, and Minority Scholarship Program may be tax deductible as charitable contributions to the extent of the law.
If you join or renew online, it can take up to 2 business days for your payment to be processed. While your membership is valid immediately, your access to certain Web-based benefits and professional liability insurance will not take effect until your payment has been processed. If you join by mail or phone, please allow up to two weeks for processing.
Yes, your NASP membership makes you eligible for discounted professional liability insurance with two companies:
- Forrest T. Jones & Company, Inc. can be reached at (800) 265-9366 and offers professional liability insurance, as well as life and health insurance, to NASP members.
- The American Professional Agency can be reached at (800) 421-6694 and offers professional liability insurance to NASP members.
NASP does not recommend one company over another; please call both agencies to see which policy will best fit your individual situation.
The NASP membership year runs from July 1 through June 30. If you join in the spring, you will be joining at the 12-month rate but enjoy benefits through June 30 of the following year.
Your state association and NASP are separate organizations, each offering many benefits to their members. Joining a state organization does not make you a NASP member. Visit this list for information on your state association.
