What is the Fellow Up! Program?
The Academy’s Fellow Up! Program assists graduating national SAA members with transitioning their membership from national SAA to the Academy. When current national SAA members have graduated with their first doctoral degree in audiology, the Academy will automatically upgrade their membership to Fellow 1 (new professional) membership when renewals are run that year.
How Does the Fellow Up! Program Work?
Participating in the Fellow Up! Program is easy. Simply follow the steps below and membership will seamlessly transfer from national SAA membership to new professional (Fellow 1) membership the year of graduation.
As part of the Fellow Up! Program, the Academy also offers new professional members a membership dues discount for three years after graduation.
- Fellow Up Dues-1st year after graduation – Graduated with FIRST doctoral degree in 2023; dues are $120 for 2024 membership
- Fellow Up Dues-2nd year after graduation – Graduated with FIRST doctoral degree in 2022; dues are $210 for 2024 membership
- Fellow Up Dues-3rd year after graduation – Graduated with FIRST doctoral degree in 2021; dues are $280 for 2024 membership
Not a current national SAA Member but ready to Fellow Up?
Nonmembers can take advantage of the new professional discounts by applying for Fellow membership. Past national SAA members can log in to the member dashboard with past student Academy username and password. Brand new members can create an account. Contact the membership department if experiencing trouble logging in or creating an account.
Once logged in or, for brand new members, an account is created, click on the “Become a Member” button and proceed to the application page. Choose Fellow for the Membership Type and then in the subsequent drop-down field, choose the corresponding Fellow Type based on the year you graduated.
