Membership is on a calendar year basis (1 Jan.–31 Dec.). New members joining between Sept.r–Dec. get an extended membership through the following year. Dues are in U.S. dollars and are based on country economic classifications according to the World Bank. Individuals who are both residing in and a citizen of a country/territory that has an economy classified other than "high income" are eligible for reduced dues. See list of eligible countries.

The GSA Foundation's Membership Fund makes it possible for individuals who cannot afford the cost of membership, or those who experience difficulty transfering funds from their country to the USA, to become GSA members. Along with membership dues, this fund also provides for membership in one of GSA's 18 special interest Divisions.

This fund is available for newly joining applicants only, and is available for all types of GSA membership — professional, early career professional, student, K–12 teacher, and affiliate.

Qualified applicants worldwide may apply for GSA membership assistance through the Foundation's Membership Fund.
