Student - Student memberships are available to full-time students of colleges, universities and other educational institutions as well as part-time students working toward a degree or a certificate program in Canada, who are not working in the communication profession. Student dues for IABC/Houston are $57 annually. Membership in the University of Houston student chapter is $49 annually, as local and regional dues are waived.

Student Transition - Professionals who have graduated from a degree program from an accredited institution in the last year are eligible for the student transition rate. For student transition members, the regular application fee is waived, and the student pays half of the international dues plus full region and chapter dues. Members can only have one year as a student transition; they must then become professional members at the full professional rate.

Retiree - Individuals who have been professional IABC members for at least five years, are retired from employment in the communication industry, and are at least 55 years of age are eligible for retiree status. Annual IABC Houston dues for retired members are US $49.
