Student Group Membership

SHRM is happy to provide our Student Group Membership processing model. This benefit is offered to our colleges, universities, SHRM academically aligned programs, and any organization that seeks to sponsor SHRM student members.

The Background
The concept was created from a request by schools and chapters who currently cover the cost of their students/student chapter members seeking SHRM Student Membership. In lieu of dealing with cumbersome reimbursement issues, we have come up with a way to help! SHRM will offer schools/chapters the ability to submit a bulk payment to process all students associated with their school and interested in SHRM Student Membership. It's that simple!

One payment, one process, one point of contact!

What is Student Membership?
Student membership is an important first step in starting your HR career off strong. Whether it is scholarships, conferences, HR news, research reports, or networking events, SHRM Student Membership provides students with access to invaluable resources to help them build the foundation of their role as an HR professional. And we have student and early career-specific content such as Ask the Expert, webcasts, and tips for students to support their journey to the HR Profession.

Student membership dues are $49 per year.
