Procedures for Student Discount (Graduate Students)

Graduate students can attend the meeting in a discounted rate by completing the student discount application procedures.
Please note that the approval for the student discount is required every year and your student status must be up-to-date to receive the discount. Please make sure your application is completed before you take any action.

It may take some time before you get the approval and the new ID is issued.
You may not be able to submit your abstract if you try to obtain the ID just before the submission deadline. If you are planning to submit an abstract, we encourage you to obtain an ID as soon as possible.

Students who is newly obtaining a JpGU ID Students are asked to enter the information of their supervisors when obtaining a JpGU ID.
An auto-email is sent to your supervisor requesting your student status confirmation. Once confirmed, your ID will be issued and you will be informed by email.
The ID will not be valid until the student status of the applicant is confirmed by his/her supervisor.
*A supervisor doesn't need to have a JpGU ID, but if he/ she has one, we strongly advise students not to skip the input of the JpGU ID. If the JpGU ID is correctly registered, the supervisor is able to confirm your student status by logging in to their JpGU members page. This will help your ID creation if the auto-email cannot be found or reached.
*JpGU ID is required to log in to the JpGU Members Site, register for the meeting and submit abstracts.
*The email may be classified as a junk and sent to the junk/ spam email folder. Students are advised to directly contact their supervisors for cooperation.
Students who already have JpGU ID (Student status update) After logging in to your personal account on the JpGU Member site, click the 'Account Settings' button and proceed from the "'Student Discount Application" link. By entering the information of your supervisor, the auto-email is sent to him/ her.
Applicant's (Student's) action The student status confirmation is automatically completed right after the confirmation email is sent to your supervisor. If there is no change in your student status, no action is required and you will be able to process the payment of the annual dues, register for the meeting and submit abstracts at a discount rate.
Supervisor's action No action is required if you will guarantee the student status of the applicant (student).
Please just let us know when the applicant is not qualified as "student" and you must decline the request.

*Please note that we might cancel the student discount if we receive a denial from your supervisor. In such case, the membership category of the applicant will be changed to "Regular" and the regular fees will be charged.
Please also be noted that if we receive a contact after the meeting and the student attended the meeting as a "student," we may ask him/ her to pay the balance due later.
