Qualifications for student membership:

Student memberships are available to those individuals enrolled in a post-secondary academic program. The student must be enrolled in a certificate, undergraduate, or graduate program unless the academic institution defines it otherwise. Proof of enrollment must be received at MPI before a student can be accepted into membership and upon renewal to retain their student membership. Student membership fees are $40 per membership year. Students are eligible for the student-in-transition program upon graduation. This allows students to grow incrementally from your current student membership rate to the full membership rate over a period of 3 years.
