Benefits for You

NBRC Discount

All AARC members get a one-time $40 discount on an NBRC exam.

Early Renewal Discount

As a student member, you are required to provide us your graduation date. Once you graduate, we change your membership type from “Student” to Active”, so you can begin earning CRCE – continuing education – credits. Active members pay more for membership, but we like to give our student members a chance to get the first year or two of Active membership at a discount. So, about 6 months before your graduation, you will take almost $60 off your cost. There will be another offer about 4 months before graduation, you will save almost $40.

Plan and save! Take advantage of an early renewal discount and the NBRC discount, and your AARC membership pays for itself!
