Alright. Now what’s it cost me?

A QC Co-Lab membership is $35 per month and is payable directly through our website. Your credit card information is not stored on our site, and payments are processed through Stripe. You can also save 10% ($378) by paying for a year in advance.
I’m a student, and can’t afford that amount per month. Do you have a discounted rate for students?
If you’re an actively enrolled student in continuing education, you’re welcome to join us and become a member of the lab. We are always trying to break down monetary barriers by offering a single hardship discount. These discounts will be offered for 3-month timeframes, with the option to re-apply every 3 months. In order to qualify for this rate, you’ll need to contact the Treasurer at [email protected] to verify eligibility and receive a coupon code that you can use to set up your dues subscription.
