What is the Student Profile Notification? Why am I receiving it?

The Student Profile Notification is an automatic notification that advisers receive when one of their students creates a profile 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 profiles created. If no student profiles are created that day, the adviser will not receive an email.


Is creating a student profile 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 do I have to do?

Advisers: When you receive a notification of a newly created student profile, 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, no action is required. To make any corrections, either log in to your adviser profile and make an adjustment to your roster or contact customer care at membership@nassp.org as soon as possible.

Students: If you want to create a student profile, 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 profile. Creating an online account has no bearing on membership. Contact your program adviser with any questions about your student membership.


What are the benefits of creating a student profile?

Students with online profiles 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.


Does this affect my role as an adviser?

No. The only impact this will have on your role is the review of the Student Profile Notification as needed to confirm accuracy of the profiles.


What happens if…

A student creates a profile that I do not know?
If a student who does not belong to your organization created an account affiliated with your school, either log in to your adviser profile and remove them from your roster or contact customer care at membership@nassp.org as soon as possible.

A student creates a profile and I need to make edits?
As an adviser, you are unable to make edits to student profiles. If your student created a profile that needs revisions, contact customer care at membership@nassp.org to request changes. The student can also make corrections themselves by logging in to their student profile.

A student creates a profile and leaves the chapter/school due to transfer/no longer being a member etc.?
If a student created a profile and then leaves your school or chapter for reasons other than graduating, please contact customer care at membership@nassp.org.

A student creates a profile and graduates?
When a student creates a profile, they are prompted to enter their graduation year. Upon graduation, their profiles will be automatically changed to an alumni account. The student will remain in your roster, listed as alumni. For assistance, contact customer care at membership@nassp.org.


Can a parent or guardian create a profile?

While it is possible for a parent or guardian to create an account on behalf of a student, we encourage students to create profiles for themselves to receive program updates directly. NASSP does not offer parent or guardian profiles.


Can a non-affiliated student create a profile?

Any student can create a profile. Advisers are encouraged to maintain their roster on a regular basis, to ensure an accurate list of active students in their organization.


Can a student under 13 create a profile?

Any students under the age of 13 must have a parent or guardian complete the COPPA Parental Consent Form in order to create a profile. Completed and signed COPPA forms can be scanned and emailed to membership@nassp.org or mailed to NASSP, ATTN: Customer Care, 1904 Association Drive, Reston, VA 20191.


If a student is a member of both NHS/NJHS and NatStuCo, do they need to create two profiles?

No. Any student who is a member of both the Honor Societies and National Student Council, should create one profile and contact Customer Care at membership@nassp.org 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.


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. Click the “X” next to any name to remove a student from your roster, or click the “Add New Individual” button to add a student to your roster. Note that advisers are not able to edit individual student profiles.


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.


Will you share the student’s information?

NASSP does not share student information with third parties.


What online resources will students with accounts have access to?

Student members with accounts will have access to all student resources available on nhs.us, njhs.us, nehs.us, and NatStuCo.org.
