Student Chapters

The MAA Student Chapters Program was launched in January 1989 to encourage students to continue study in the mathematical sciences, provide opportunities to meet with other students interested in mathematics, interact with prominent mathematicians at national meetings, and provide career information in the mathematical sciences. There are no scholastic requirements, and students need not be mathematics majors.

Benefits of Starting a Student Chapter at your school

  • Provide your students with all of the great MAA member benefits, including discounts on MAA publications, for a very low rate.
  • Receive timely information regarding special activities for students at section and national meetings.
  • Stay on top of events and get great ideas for local program activities with the MAA's Math Alert and MAA Focus.

There is no cost to start a student chapter at your school, but your chapter's students must be active members of the MAA. The cost of membership for undergraduate students is only $35 per year and includes electronic access to the MAA Math Horizons, MAA FOCUS, and The College Mathematics Journal.  Undergraduate students can learn more about this membership, and find a membership application, by visiting Undergraduate membership. Member benefits will commence on the day the order is processed and will continue for the next 12 months.

To start a chapter at your school, or to affiliate your existing math club with the MAA, the faculty advisor should contact our membership service department at or (800)331-1622 and inquire about student memberships. The scope of the student chapter at your school is limited only by the imagination and effort you choose to put into it.
