Membership dues are non-transferrable and non-refundable and vary based on your school location. Log into the SAVMA dues website to view your current dues. 

SAVMA Chapter & Associate Organization membership

If you are at a school with a SAVMA Chapter you will be registering for membership as a SAVMA Chapter member. Please note you will pay for local SAVMA Chapter Membership fees and national SAVMA Membership fees, as well as any optional journal subscriptions you choose to order in the registration process. You must be currently in attendance at your school of veterinary medicine in order to pay for your membership dues.

Back dues 

If you wish to pay back dues for a previous membership year as a SAVMA Chapter member or St. Matthew's University SAVMA Associate Member, you must email your SAVMA Chapter President to confirm that your SAVMA Chapter will accept this type of order. Your President should be able to provide you with further details on how to make a back dues payment. All students who wish to graduate in good standing with their SAVMA Chapter must pay for membership dues for all the years they are in vet school.

Student Associate member

If you are an international student enrolled in a veterinary program that will lead to a degree in veterinary medicine and are at a school without a SAVMA Chapter or local SAVMA Associate Organization you will register for SAVMA membership as a Student Associate Member. Membership runs from mid-April to mid-April. Membership fees increase on February 15 for the current membership year. Log in to view the current SAVMA membership rates.

Journal orders

All current SAVMA members receive free access to issues of the Journal of the AVMA (JAVMA) through the JAVMA app, along with free access to the online archive of all JAVMA articles.

SAVMA members can still receive the student reduced subscription rate to the print version of the JAVMA and the American Journal of Veterinary Research (AJVR) in the amount of $40 per journal subscription. If you wish to purchase a journal subscription, log back into the SAVMA dues site to pay for your journal choice, JAVMA and/or AJVR, through the SAVMA online dues system. This will ensure that you receive your journal subscription choice at the student reduced rate.
