Strengthening our bond to improve animals' lives

Student Membership Application

Student Membership

Requirements for Membership:

Student membership is free and limited to veterinary students who are currently enrolled in an accredited college of veterinary medicine. International veterinary students are welcome.

You can be a member as an individual student as well as a member of your school’s student chapter. Members of student chapters will have additional benefits.

As a member, you can learn about veterinary behavior, network with other students and veterinarians through a private forum, have access to listings of available opportunities in the field and keep up with current developments in the industry.

Note that veterinary technicians and veterinary technician students are not eligible for AVSAB membership. Instead, we recommend checking out the Society of Veterinary Behavior Technicians ( and the Academy of Veterinary Behavior Technicians ( for behavior resources for technicians.

Directions for existing student members:

If you are an already a student member, and have not filled out this form on our new website (since August 3rd, 2016), we need you to fill out the information below so we have your information in our new system.
