How does a student create an account?
If you want to create a student account, click the “Create an Account” button at the top of your student program’s website. Follow the directions on the page to create your own account. Creating an online account has no bearing on membership. Contact your program adviser with any questions about your student membership.
What does a student under 13 need to do to create an account?
Any students under the age of 13 must have a parent or guardian complete the COPPA Parental Consent Form in order to create an account. Completed and signed COPPA forms can be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to 703-860-3422, or mailed to NASSP, ATTN: Customer Care, 1904 Association Drive, Reston, VA 20191.
Parents, students and advisers will receive an email confirming receipt of the form within 1-2 business days and the creation of the student’s NJHS account. Students will also be provided a password that will be used to log into their account.
Will you share the student’s information?
NASSP does not share student information with third parties.
Is creating a student account required for membership in NHS/NJHS/NEHS/NatStuCo?
No. Advisers are responsible for maintaining their own roster of active student members. Student accounts on any NASSP website have no bearing on membership status. Advisers can maintain their student rosters offline, or can use the online roster.
What are the benefits of creating a student account?
Students with online accounts will receive regular updates about student program services, including new information about awards, resources such as #Futuready or the Career Exploration Series, project ideas from the National Student Project Database, updates on student conferences, and more. Senior members of NHS are required to have a verified profile to apply for the NHS Scholarship each October. Once verified, students will also earn a digital badge.
Where can I learn more about digital badging?

Can a parent or guardian create an account?
While it is possible for a parent or guardian to create an account on behalf of a student, we encourage students to create accounts for themselves to receive program updates directly. NASSP does not offer parent or guardian accounts.
If a student is a member of both NHS or NJHS and NatStuCo, do they need to create two accounts?
No. Any student who is a member of both the Honor Societies and National Student Council, should create one account and contact Customer Care at email@example.com to request to be added to multiple programs. To create an account, click the “Create an Account” button at the top of each program’s website.
What happens when a student graduates?
Student accounts must be verified for the current school year by Friday, July 31. Upon graduation, verified accounts will be automatically changed to an alumni account. The student will remain on the school’s roster, listed in the “Others” tab. For assistance, contact customer care at firstname.lastname@example.org. Accounts not verified by August 1 will be removed unable to be retroactively verified.
Can a non-affiliated student create an account?
A non-affiliated student may create an account but will not be verified as a member of an NASSP Student Program. Advisers can maintain their roster by verifying students who are active members and deleting students (if needed) who are not members to ensure an accurate list of active students in their organization.
What is the Student Account Notification? Why am I (as adviser) receiving it?
The Student Account Notification is an automatic notification that advisers receive when one or more of their students creates an account on one of the NASSP Student Program websites, including NHS, NJHS, NEHS, and National Student Council. You are receiving this notification as the designated primary adviser for the program.
The email is triggered on a daily basis, so an adviser will receive one email per day with a summary of any new accounts created. If no student accounts are created that day, the adviser will not receive an email.
How do I verify a student’s account?
When you receive a notification of a newly created student account, review the student’s information and check if they are an active member of your organization.
If they are active members and all information is correct, then you must log in to your account to access your Student roster and click the check box next to their name to verify the account so that it is considered active. You can watch a quick video on the process here.
To make any corrections, either log in to your adviser account and make an adjustment to your roster or contact customer care at email@example.com as soon as possible.
How can I access/edit my roster?
Advisers can edit their rosters by logging into their student program website by clicking the “Login” button at the top of the page. Then, click “My Account” at the top of the page. You should now see a tab in the middle of the page with your school name on it. Click that tab and scroll down to see your roster, it will default to the adviser roster. To see your student roster, click the “Students” tab.
To verify a student, click the box next to their name and then click “Verify Selected”. To remove a student, click the “X” next to a student’s name. Please note that advisers are not able to edit individual student accounts.
Does this affect my role as an adviser?
No. The only impact this will have on your role is the review of the Student Account Notification as needed to verify the accuracy of the accounts.
What happens if…
A student creates an account that I do not know?
If a student who does not belong to your organization or school created an account affiliated with your school, you can remove the student from your roster. Log in to see your roster and simply delete the student record. Note that once you delete the student record, the student will receive a notification that they are no longer affiliated with your program at your school.
A student creates an account and I need to verify their membership?
As an adviser, you have the authority to verify a student’s membership status in an NASSP Student Program, namely NHS, NJHS, NEHS, or NatStuCo. You must verify a student’s membership in your program by logging in and checking the verification box next to the student’s name for their account to be considered active, a requirement for some award applications.
A student creates an account and leaves the chapter/school due to transfer/no longer being a member etc.?
If a student created an account and then leaves your school or chapter for reasons other than graduating, please contact customer care at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A student creates an account and graduates?
When a student creates an account, they are prompted to enter their graduation year. Upon graduation, their accounts will be automatically changed to an alumni account. The student will remain in your roster, listed in the “Others” tab. For assistance, contact customer care at email@example.com.
Will you stop sending advisers and principals notifications about student programs now that you’re emailing students directly?
No. Any information shared with students will complement the information that is already shared with advisers.
