Member Benefits

NYSTAA is committed to the success of the college transfer student. Our membership includes individuals involved in the transfer process at every level. We seek opportunities to improve the transfer process and promote student success. If you share the passion we have for making a difference in the lives of our students please consider becoming a NYSTAA member.

We are an organization that is led by our members. The issues and needs that are witnessed on the local, state, and national level as identified by our members are the focus of our organization. Every member has a voice and the opportunity to be involved in the capacity they choose such as committee involvement and leadership positions. In the past new committees have been formed based on the identified need expressed by members. We are truly a member led organization. NYSTAA will continue to grow and be a leader in higher education as an organization centered on this philosophy. We hope you consider becoming a member of NYSTAA as we continue our role as an advocate for the transfer student.
