Student Connect is the HTCIA’s student membership program.
On October 19, 2008, the International Board of Directors approved a bylaw provision creating the Student Membership.
The purpose of this membership class is to foster, promote, and encourage the study of criminal investigations involving advanced technologies and security by the academic community. It is limited to undergraduate or graduate students majoring in computer science; forensics, criminal justice, law enforcement, corrections, accounting, auditing or similar program of study with a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) established by the International Executive Committee (IEC). The IEC will establish general application procedures and requirements for Student Members which are not in conflict with these bylaws.
Ten or more Student Members from one college or university may form a HTCIA School Charter. The IEC will establish general application procedures, requirements and governance for HTCIA School Charters.
