School Subscription

In addition to school membership, we offer NAIS subscriptions for schools that do not meet NAIS full or candidate membership requirements. NAIS Subscriber Schools receive access to many of NAIS’s resources and services throughout the course of one school year (July 1-June 30). There are two levels of subscription: NAIS Subscription and NAIS Premium Subscription.

If you have any questions, please contact us through our Help Center or call (202) 973-9700.

We also offer an NAIS Supporter Program for corporations and nonprofit organizations.
