Student & Trial Memberships

Student memberships are available to full-time students of colleges, universities, and other educational institutions as well as part-time students working toward a degree, who are not presently working in the communication profession.

International dues (which include Pittsburgh dues) for students are $46. Read more from IABC/International. Be sure to read the part about the half-price rate after graduation!

If you meet the qualifications for a student membership, fill out and submit the student membership application form.

If you’d like to start a student chapter at your college, please contact a board member.

Recent Graduates

Recent graduates can become a transitional member and stick with IABC. There are chapters around the world. Graduate students are also welcome.

  • Have you graduated within the last year from a degree program from an accredited institution?
  • Can you provide proof of your degree conferral (a diploma, transcript, or letter from the Registrar)?

If the answer is yes, you are eligible for the reduced student transition membership rate.

Transitional members receive all of the same benefits as professional members at around 60% of the cost. Learn more here.
