Membership

Interested in Becoming a BSSA Member?

As UCSD's largest biology organization, BSSA provides the undergraduate community with a plethora of events--everything from professional development workshops to socials, and more! We are dedicated to assisting you throughout your college journey, including its academic, professional, personal, and social aspects. As a member, you will be provided with abundant resources, mentorships, networks, and workshops that will further your success. With our exclusive faculty and alumni network, you will be able to explore all fields in the division of biology and more. You can find more information about what BSSA is, our values, and our events here:

While membership is not required to attend our events, we highly encourage you consider registering to become a member! Member registration allows you to gain BSSA points for attending BSSA events, which are counted towards active membership. BSSA values its involved and dedicated members as we recognize that it is your time and support that allows us to grow as an organization. Active BSSA members have multiple benefits such as discounts off senior stoles and are eligible to become BSSA officers (if they are a part of at least one BSSA committee). Participation in various aspects of BSSA is weighted differently as shown on the graphic to the left.

Membership Registration

Membership is carried over from year to year, so you will not need to register each year. However, membership points reset each quarter. Fill out this Google Form to register for BSSA Membership.

Please note that membership is limited to those with UCSD affiliation, so please remember to sign-in to your UCSD email account prior to filling out the Google Form if you are having trouble accessing it.
