One of the many benefits of participating in the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program is receiving a discount on an annual USEA membership. A Full membership with the USEA costs $100 per year, where a Collegiate membership costs $75. However, the discounted Collegiate membership is only offered to undergraduate students who are listed on their official team roster, and the deadline to submit a roster is Monday, February 15!

Team representative should send their team rosters to the USEA Senior Director of Membership Services Jennifer Hardwick at [email protected] by February 15 of each year. Please list every member on the school’s eventing team.

This policy is strictly related to receiving the USEA Collegiate membership discount. Collegiate students whose names are submitted after February 15 will still be considered Collegiate Members and have their names appear on the Intercollegiate leaderboards and participate in the Championships.

Undergraduate students are eligible to maintain a Collegiate membership and receive the discount for a total of five school years, which may be nonconsecutive. There is no age restriction on eligibility for current undergraduate students. Team coaches are not eligible for the discount unless the coach is also a student that meets the Collegiate membership criteria.

Graduate students and alumni are not eligible to receive the Collegiate membership discount, but they are welcome to participate in any of the 2021 Intercollegiate Team Challenges. Graduate students are also encouraged to compete in the Graduate division at the 2021 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships. In addition to graduate students, the 2020 seniors who lost the chance to compete in the 2020 Championships will be allowed to compete in the graduate division this year. The Championship for graduate students will be scored and awarded separately from the Championship for undergraduate students. Graduate division competitors must represent a school that is affiliated with the USEA.

Please remember that every school must renew its affiliate membership each year. Click here to renew for 2021!

About the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program

The USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Program was established in 2014 to provide a framework within which eventing teams and individual competitors could flourish at universities and colleges across the country. The USEA offers a discount of $25 on annual USEA memberships for current students of universities and colleges registered as Affiliates with the USEA. Many events across the country now offer Intercollegiate Team Challenges where collegiate eventers can compete individually as well as on teams with their fellow students. In Intercollegiate Team Challenges, each rider’s score is multiplied by a coefficient appropriate for their level to account for differences in level difficulty and then the individual scores are added together to determine the team score.

The USEA would like to thank Bates Saddles, EQuine AMerica Magazine, FITS, World Equestrian Brands, FLAIR, and US Equestrian for sponsoring the Intercollegiate Eventing Program
