Students and Early Career

Each year, approximately 2,000 school psychology graduate students, interns, and early career professionals choose the NASP convention to prepare for their career. Note: Student members who register by January 11 pay only $119! 

Why Come to the Convention

  • Connect with peers, potential employers, and seasoned practitioners.
  • Start to establish an expertise in the topics you care about most.
  • Learn fundamental skills from leading experts in the profession.
  • Navigate the transition to practice with career-related special sessions.
  • Meet with a mentor on site to address questions you may have.
  • Reaffirm your passion for the profession.

Work Opportunities to Cut Costs

Graduate student members can work as Convention Assistants to receive a $80 registration fee refund in appreciation of their service. All attendees can work as Workshop Monitors and can attend the workshop they monitor free of charge and earn documented CPD. Slots for these positions opened on Tuesday, November 1, at noon EDT.

Convention Consultations

Sign up to meet with a more experienced colleague for an hour on site. Take advantage of this chance to meet face-to-face with someone else who’s also at the convention in Denver and can share their experience with you and answer questions about the profession or your career after graduation. Select from a list of available individuals (they sign up over a period of months so check back often). Once you select someone, you can connect via email or phone to choose when and where to meet. Early career members can sign up to provide consultation to graduate students, in addition to seeking consultation themselves.
