Student Membership
ACRP’s student membership program was created in 2003 to provide a means by which students in a variety of science-focused programs interested in pursuing a career in clinical research could become a part of the ACRP community at a significantly reduced member rate. ACRP offers a special reduced rate ($60 USD) electronic membership for students in accredited academic clinical research programs. To be considered eligible, applicants must meet the following requirements*:
  • Individuals must provide proof of enrollment as either a full-time student in an accredited college or university (minimum of 12 credit hours or equivalent), or a part-time student (minimum of 3 credit hours per semester) in an accredited clinical research program or scientific discipline in order to be considered.
  • Documentation of active enrollment (college transcript or official enrollment document from institution) must be sent with the application. This member type can apply to students who are actively pursuing their undergraduate, post graduate, doctorate degree, or enrolled in a school of professional studies.
  • Once a student has completed their program or is no longer in attendance, the full regular member rate will apply at the next renewal cycle.
