An active membership in the Alberta Pharmacy Students' Association is voluntary but highly encouraged for Alberta pharmacy students. A membership offers countless benefits, including: ability to attend APSA and CAPSI events (eg, PDW), discounts on admission to other pharmacy events (eg, Blue and Gold discount), membership card deals, discounts on lockers, free intramurals, and many other benefits listed on our Member Services and Events pages. In addition, an APSA membership is required in order to be elected or appointed to any council or officer position. Many members will agree that the cost of an APSA membership pays itself off rather quickly, and each pharmacy class consistently has over 95% (or even 100%) membership in our association.
The one-time membership fee of $200 will cover your four years in the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy program, and will carry over to the PharmD program as well at no additional cost.
