We give you the extra preparation, knowledge and security you need to enable you to get and keep that job. You help us make the difference in the field of education. Dues are nominal ($28.00) because we know most students have limited resources.

Membership Rebates for First Year Teachers
CTA Bylaws allow a rebate to former Student CTA members who join CTA during their first year of membership eligibility. Student CTA membership dues are rebated only to former SCTA members and are $10.00 per year of SCTA membership, up to five years.

In addition, NEA will issue $10 for each year of Student CTA/NEA membership up to four years. Rebate application forms must be submitted to CTA/NEA by MAY 1st of the first year in which you were eligible and held active CTA/NEA membership. For applications, please contact the Student CTA office.
