Fellow Up! - Upgrade your SAA Membership

Fellow Up! - Upgrade your SAA Membership

The Academy's Fellow Up! Program assists graduating SAA members with transitioning their membership from student to professional status within the Academy. Once current SAA members have graduated with their first doctoral degree in audiology, successfully completed a national exam, and/or received a state audiology license, they are eligible to Fellow Up! at NO ADDITIONAL COST for that year. IT'S FREE! 

The Academy has also implemented a graduated dues system to show support for new audiologists. First-year graduates receive a $210.00 discount off of current Fellow membership dues, followed by a $120.00 discount for second-year graduates, and then a $50 discount for third-year graduates. The adjusted graduated dues system is designed to lessen the financial impact of professional membership over time and allow new professionals greater opportunity to stay involved.

Not a current SAA Member? Nonmembers can still take advantage of the new graduate discounts by applying for Fellow membership. Discount will be given upon verification of eligibility during the staff review process of the application. 

Ready to Fellow Up!? Fill out an Upgrade Application, sign the Code of Ethics, attach a copy of your Praxis scores or a copy of your audiology license, and mail to the address on the application. For the quickest processing, fax to 703-790-8631 or email the membership department.
