Student Chapters


ASA student chapters provide opportunities for students to connect with other students interested in statistics and interact with prominent statisticians locally and at national meetings. They also encourage students to continue studying statistics and provide career information in the statistical sciences. There are no scholastic requirements, and students need not be statistics majors. All students are welcome and encouraged to get involved.

  • Access to your own chapter microsite—we can give you the tools to create your own, or we’ll create it for you
  • Free ASA membership for your chapter president
  • Free swag for your chapter members
  • Funding to hold social events for your chapter
  • Timely information regarding special activities for students at national and local meetings

There is no cost to start a student chapter at your school, but your chapter president must be an active member of the ASA. Not already a member? No problem! We’ll give your president a free annual membership. Other members of your chapter can join the ASA for only $25 per year.
