Membership Application Processes

Excellence in Nutrition Research and Practice
We are pleased that you are interested in applying for membership with the premier society for nutrition research and practice. We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the American Society for Nutrition.  Please see the information below and contact the ASN membership department if you have any further questions.

Application Fees

All Regular and Associate member applicants will be assessed a $25 non-refundable application fee; this fee is collected at the time your application is submitted.

DISCOUNT for all Young Professional/Postdoctoral and Student applicants! The non-refundable application fee is only $10 for Young Professional/Postdoctoral applicants and $5 for Student applicants; this fee is collected at the time your application is submitted.

Dues and Qualifications

We encourage you to view our membership dues and qualifications page prior to submitting your membership application.


Your application must be completed at the time of submission. The list of required elements is variable depending on membership category but may include valid contact information, short CV (approx. 3-4 pages) or resume, sponsor name and valid contact information and any other requested information. If the ASN Membership Department does not receive the proper information from you within eight weeks, your application will be terminated. If you are still interested in joining ASN after this point, you will need to re-apply.

Your credit card will be processed at point of submission. If you are not accepted as a member with the American Society for Nutrition, your credit card will be refunded the membership dues amount. The application fee is non-refundable.

Your completed membership application will be reviewed and processed within 1-2 weeks from time of submission. All applicants will be notified via email of their membership status. 

Updating Your Membership Category

If you are a current member of ASN and would like to be considered for a different membership category (student member to young professional/postdoc member, young professional/postdoc member to associate/regular member, associate member to regular member), please e-mail an updated CV/resume to ASN's membership department with your request.
