Student membership is open to anyone enrolled as a full-time student in a continuous undergraduate or graduate dental program.
Student/Resident rates: AAID's membership year is December 1—November 30, and the annual dues are $50 for student members. For those joining between July 1 and November 30, the dues are $25 for the remainder of the membership year.
Documentation of full time student status must accompany the membership application to be eligible for student/resident membership. We suggest that a graduation date be included. Otherwise, documentation must be submitted annually.
Only ONE form of documentation is required. Examples of documentation include:
- a letter from a program director on school letterhead
- with the type of program and expected graduation date
- a dated letter of admission into an education program
- a copy of your residency agreement
- a current semester course registration schedule (12 credit hours per week or more)
Documentation can be submitted by email, by fax (312-335-9090) or by mail with the application.
Enrollment in Continuing Education (CE) courses does not qualify for student status.
Recent graduate rates: Renewing student/resident members are automatically enrolled into the recent graduate rates upon graduation. The annual dues are $100 the first year after graduation and $200 the second year. Regular general member rates (currently $345) apply the third year after graduation.
If you would like to take advantage of these rates as a new member, please send documentation of recent graduation. A photo or copy of your diploma can be submitted by email, by fax (312-335-9090) or by mail with the application.
