Q: I am no longer a student

Answer: 会員種別の判断は、毎年10月1日時点の在籍状況によって決定いたします。 毎年、学生会員の学籍確認の手続きについて、8月頃にメールをお送りしています。 大学院を修了された会員は、次年度の会員資格の変更手続きを行いますので、指定する方法で学籍を外れた旨を本部事務局までご連絡ください。 卒業年月直後に始まる学会の新年度(毎年10月1日)より、会員種別を正会員に変更させていただきます。会費の金額が変わりますのでご注意ください。 なお、修了後、常勤職を持たない会員におかれましては会費の減額制度がご利用頂けます。 この会費減額制度の利用には、募集期限内の本人による届出が必要になります。 期限内に届出がない場合は、通常の正会員としての会費をご請求いたします。 本件にかんするお問い合わせ先 国際開発学会・本部事務局
