Refund and Transfer Policies

Membership dues are nonrefundable, nontransferable, nor prorated. APS members can cancel their membership at any time; however, no portion of their membership dues shall be prorated or refunded.

APS membership is nontransferable and belongs to the individual, not the institution or corporation. Individual members may take their membership with them when they change employment. Members are responsible for updating their information with APS. This nontransfer policy also applies to institutional and corporate membership agreements.
