Student Members are sponsored by full-grade Members or Associate Members. The student must be studying or have an interest in an HVAC&R industry-related field. A student eligible for ASHRAE student membership is a person matriculated in an approved course of study in a university, college, junior college, or technical institute, who is being educated in the arts and sciences covered by the Society’s objectives.

Student status terminates one year after leaving school or graduating. A student may advance from student to Associate member status during the first year following graduation through the SmartStart program. This allows a Student Member to join without paying the full membership dues fee at the time of application. For more information please visit the SmartStart page or contact the Assistant Manager of Student Activities.
