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.

Members are responsible for updating their information with APS. This nontransfer policy also applies to institutional and corporate membership agreements.
