Student Member Eligibility Requirements

You can refer as many fellow civil engineering students as you like. They don’t even have to be from your school. If you’ve got friends in civil engineering programs at other schools, you’re welcome to refer them too.

Here are the basic requirements that each student you refer must meet:
  • Must be enrolled at least half-time in a degreed program
  • Students must be a member of an ASCE-organized student organization at the school where enrolled, if an organization exists
  • Or enrolled at a school which is eligible to have an ASCE-recognized student organization but currently does not have such an organization

You can win rewards and prizes in two ways:

Drawing Entries – All referring students will get entered into prize drawings to win free personal print subscriptions to Civil Engineering magazine and ASCE News.

Drawing Date: May 30, 2006

Top Recruiter Rewards – At the end of the drive, ASCE will announce the Top 10 Student Recruiters, based on the number of referred students who joined ASCE. These 10 winning students will be rewarded for their recruitment efforts and will receive:

  • A free personal print subscription of Civil Engineering magazine and ASCE News
  • Plus the Top Student Recruiter of the drive will win $500 in cash!
