Student SSA Membership
Membership in the Secular Student Alliance is free for students! Any student enrolled in a U.S. high school, college, graduate program, technical school, or equivalent is welcome to become a member at no cost.
Many organizations offer "student" memberships: reduced-rate and reduced-benefit versions of the full memberships reserved for people with full pockets. Not here! Students are the core of the Secular Student Alliance, and so our student members not only get every single benefit that non-student members get - you get extra benefits not available to non-students!
As a student member of the Secular Student Alliance, you receive:
- Swag to display your membership, including a customized membership card, stickers, bookmarks, a window cling, and more!
- A membership card to carry with you
- Discounts to the SSA Annual Conference and other national events
- Eligibility to apply for Leadership Travel Aid to our Annual Conference and other national secular events
- Eligibility to apply for a Project Grant
- Connection to the larger secular student movement via monthly email newsletters and other opportunities
- Eligibility to run for our Board of Directors
- Eligibility for the SSA's Scholarships for Student Activists
By becoming a member, you're joining a nation-wide network of secular student activists working to:
- Normalize secular identity
- Engage in activism for secular causes
- Educate others about religion and secular worldviews
- Enact your secular values through service
Our demographic is the least likely to be religious and the most likely to be open-minded. When it comes to changing the world, nobody's more important than you - your creativity, dedication, and enthusiasm are unmatched.
Welcome to the Secular Student Alliance. Let's change the world.
Some notes about filling out the membership form:
- Type your name EXACTLY as you want it to appear on your membership card - this means with your correct and preferred spelling, capitalization, and punctuation!
- When entering your address, be as specific and complete as possible. Your swag won't make it to you in the mail if you forget to write your apartment number!
- In autumn 2014 we changed the way we process student memberships. This means that students who joined between June and November 2014 may experience a delay in receiving their membership card. In general please allow 4-6 weeks for processing and delivery of your swag.
Now you can sign up your entire affiilate group membership for free SSA memberships!
