ITE takes great pride in our student members and we have a great history of working with our students to develop their skills so they can succeed as transportation professionals.
In order to become a student member of ITE you must
be enrolled as a student in a graduate or undergraduate program at a school of recognized standing; and
not be otherwise eligible for another grade of membership.
Students can join ITE as an undergraduate for free and $30 per year for graduate students.
For cities, counties, states, provinces, MPO’s, and federal agencies, ITE offers discounted pricing on ITE membership if a minimum of 5 individuals join from the entity.
There are two options: the Traditional Dues Option and the Flat Fee Dues Option
The Traditional Dues option allows you to sign up at least 5 members at a discounted fee, that lowers as more people are added to the roster.
The Flat Fee Dues option allows you to sign up as many people as you like (up to ½ the price of regular membership) for a flat fee amount. This offers the greatest savings for the agency and pricing is dependent upon the population size of the city, county, province, or state.
