Student Membership

Student membership is open to high school, technical school, and college students who are enrolled in career and technical education programs. Each student must meet the qualifications set by the school. Qualified students receive a formal invitation by the local NTHS Chapter Advisor. Students attending a post-secondary school may either transfer their NTHS membership or pursue membership as a new NTHS member based on their academic standing in a CTE field. Discover NTHS membership and its benefits.The student membership fee is a one time $25 fee. Chapters may also add local dues to cover an induction ceremony and any other expenses they incur.

Benefits include:

  • NTHS membership materials including: custom certificate, presentation folder, member pin, ID card, window decal, white tassel, official NTHS diploma seal and general letter of recommendation customized for each student's career portfolio.

Alumni Professional Membership

Once a student member has graduated in good standing, they are eligible to join the NTHS Alumni Association. Because student log in access is valid for only one year past the graduation date provided by the member, joining the NTHS Alumni Professionals is an excellent way to continue online benefits, receive letters of recommendation, apply for a C. Allen Powell Scholarship, specifically designated for members who join the Alumni Professionals program. A portion of the Alumni dues funds scholarships for future NTHS students. Join the NTHS Alumni Professionals.
