Membership Rates

USETDA annual membership dues rates

  • Institutional: $100 per institution
  • ETD Association Member: $100 base + $75 per ETD association member*.
  • Library Consortium Member: $100 base + $85 per library consortium member*
  • Individual: $50 per individual

Institutional, association and consortium membership covers all individuals from the same institution, association* or consortium* including the annual conference registration discount rate. Individual membership is intended for individuals independent of organizations or for use where your institution may not yet offer or support an ETD program. USETDA membership is valid for 1 year (July 1st of the current year through June 30th of the following year) and coincides with annual USETDA conference registration.

*ETD association and library consortium membership is comprised of a $100 annual base fee plus an additional cost ($75/$85, respectively) for each institution to be covered under the Association/Consortia membership. For example, the rate for an ETD association that will include membership coverage for 10 institutions would be $850 (the $100 base fee plus $75 per member institution) annually. Associations/Consortia may pay the full member dues or ask member institutions to cover the costs beyond the base fee. To coordinate ETD association or library consortia membership contact USETDA.
