Student Memberships

The SCA can trace its origins to student activism and has long served student needs by providing a forum for professional papers and publications, meetings to communicate ideas, discoveries, and new research, a venue to seek and find job opportunities, and a place to meet and get to know your peers. Student members receive all the benefits of regular members.

In order to encourage and support student participation, the SCA requires a fee of just $30.00 for student membership, less than one-half the regular member rate.

*All members joining at the student rate must email a photo of a current student ID to the Business Office at
