Membership is open to all graduates who hold an associate or equivalent degree or higher from a qualified educational institution (those that offer recognized associate, baccalaureate, or high degrees and that have full regional or appropriate professional association approval).  Until graduating with that degree, a student affiliate may participate in all AAUW activities except for holding office or voting.  For further membership information contact  Sue Shineman, state membership vice president, or visit the membership section of the AAUW National website.
