Membership is open to any graduate with an associate or equivalent or baccalaureate or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Undergraduates enrolled in such an institution may become student affiliates.

Membership is not by invitation. In principle and practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. There are no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, national origin, creed, age, sexual orientation, or disability.

Though the branch year is July 1 through June 30, prospective members may join at any time during the year.
