ASHRAE Student Transfer Form
Please note that the SmartStart program is for current ASHRAE Student members who have been a Student member for at least one year.
What is the SmartStart program?
Simply put, it’s the best way for ASHRAE student members to receive the many benefits of Associate grade membership after finishing college. SmartStart is a 3 year program that allows Student members to transfer to Associate grade membership at a rate that is recent-graduate friendly.
Prices as of July 1, 2023: SmartStart participants who join or renew after this date will be part of the new dues structure. Participants who only paid for one year upon transferring their membership will renew based on this new dues structure. New program prices are (for 3 years respectively): $25 (+) $100 (+) $130= $255 for 3 years.
The Developing Economies pricing ($15 + $60 + $80 = $155) is open to those residing in countries considered to be “Low Income” & “Lower Middle Income” by the World Bank. Visit the World Bank's Web site for a list of low income /lower middle income countries.
