Professional Members

A professional staff member at a member institution qualifies for the discounted member rate. Registration includes all conference functions, museum entry, opening gala dinner and event, Monday and Tuesday lunch, continental breakfast, regional dinner, and the closing banquet on Wednesday. 

Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Registration includes all conference functions, museum entry, opening gala dinner and event, Monday and Tuesday lunch, continental breakfast, regional dinner, and the closing banquet on Wednesday.

In 2008, ACUI's Growing the Profession Task Force revealed a challenge in attracting young people to the profession. A purposeful decision was made to tighten the budget in other areas and allow for reduced rates for graduate students.

Additionally, the programming for undergraduate students will allow them to build their community and learn more about a career in the field through deeper learning sessions and intentional networking functions.

*Full-time professionals pursuing an advanced degree are not eligible for either student discount.  


Honorary Members and Union Veterans (Retiree)

This rate is available to union veterans and honorary members of the Association. Retirees must have retired from the college union or student activities field but desire the continue engagement with the Association. Honorary members are conferred by the Board of Trustees to those individuals who have given exceptional service to the Association.

Spouses, Family, and Partners

Other Association monies help make it possible for spouses, partners, and family members to attend the annual conference with minimal registration fees. Registration for this group include: 100th Anniversary Gala; access to educational sessions, featured keynotes, ACUI Expo, and other special conference activities; conference information and official name badge; access to ACUI After Dark entertainment; and Closing Banquet.


Any college or university that presents a general program for the cultural and recreational life of the student body as a primary activity is invited to join the Association. Member-priced events are only available after an institution or individual commits to membership.

Associate Members not Participating in the ACUI Expo

Registration for companies choosing to attend the conference and not participate in the ACUI Expo includes access to the exhibit hall floor, all educational sessions and keynotes, and lunch in the ACUI Expo for up to three company representatives. Other meals or ticketed events are not included in this package. There is no discount for registering fewer than three delegates.

One-Day Registration

One-day registration is available for those student affairs professionals who cannot attend the entire conference. Please see the conference schedule for programs and meals that are included in the fees below. Meal tickets are required for community of practice and regional dinners, the opening event, closing banquet, and ACUI Expo meals. As part of a delegates' registration, a guest ticket can be purchased for the closing banquet $95. Tickets to regional or community of practice dinners, tours, or any other event are not available to non-registered delegates.



Payment for all fees is due at the time of registration. All fees are listed in U.S. dollars. International currency will be accepted at the exchange rate prevalent at the time of payment.
