Professionals & Faculty in Transition

NASPA’s Transitional Membership is designed to bridge a gap for student affairs professionals who wish to stay connected to the Association while searching for their next opportunity following a job loss. It extends the Professional Affiliate rate, for one annual renewal with limited benefits, to individuals with a recently expired NASPA Professional Affiliate membership who are not currently employed.

In recognition of the significant impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the student affairs profession, the Transitional Membership eligibility has been expanded to include both renewing and brand new members of any membership type who have been furloughed or laid off, as well as recent graduate students who have yet to find employment in student affairs. This expanded Transitional Membership is available at a reduced rate of $37, for one annual renewal or join, with the same benefits that the member had under their previous membership or would have had if they held a previous membership. Eligibility is based on the employment status of the student affairs professional.

To access the transitional membership, please complete this form. You will receive an email from us at the email address you provide within 3-4 business days with instructions for how to complete your membership. 

We know this is a difficult time and will do everything we can to support you and your professional journey.
