Students are not eligible for continuing education credits. The student rate is open to bona fide students at an institution of higher education who are enrolled in a degree granting curriculum of course work, and otherwise not gainfully employed or compensated to any substantial degree that would reasonably negate the expectation of discounted fees. The following proof of student status is required at the time of registration: a) an unofficial transcript or b) enrollment verification of status.

Spouse/domestic partner/child registrants are not eligible for continuing education credits. The spouse/domestic partner/child fee is limited to guest attendees and does not include a certificate of attendance. In order to qualify for this rate, the attendee must be at least 13 years of age and accompanying a regular, student, or emeritus conference registrant in a non-professional, non-college health related, and non-business related role. You may not register as a spouse/domestic partner/child via the online registration site or the paper form. To register, contact membership@acha.org.
