Reporting CEU's and Lapse Membership

How do I request my Continuing Education Units (CEUs)?

Reporting Continuing Education Units (CEU) is simple through the ARPAS website. Just log on to the site at and click on Submit CEUs. Not only is your CEU record instantly updated when you enter your meetings online, but the system also keeps a convenient submission history in case you wish to check your past entries. Don’t see a meeting you want to report on the approved list? No problem! You can submit any meeting to be approved and posted on the list before you enter it online. Remember, 16 CEUs are required each year to maintain your registration, and up to 16 CEUs can be carried over to the following year.

Renewing Your Lapsed Membership

We are one-third of the way into 2018, and dues for this year are past due for several of our members. Your membership is important to us and to you as a professional animal scientist and is not to be taken lightly.

Members with lapsed membership from a previous year can reinstate their membership by filling out a lapsed member form (available on our website and paying a reinstatement fee of $20 plus dues and CEUs for the current year. No, you do not have to retake the exam.

If you have retired and want to continue as an active member, you can establish an emeritus membership, which is available to ARPAS members who have retired and are no longer practicing professional activities in animal science. Continuing education units are not required for emeritus members. The annual membership fee for emeritus members is $47.50 per year.

Life emeritus members may also elect to pay a one-time fee of only $285. You may renew your emeritus membership online today or download the printable form from the ARPAS website.
