Different Type of Memberships

Post by gubica »

There are 2 types of membership:

1. Restricted Membership
To qualify for restricted membership, you must be a new student or a current basic science student. All members within this category will be restricted to the basic science curriculum.

New users transfering from "The Union" should register with a the same e-mail address they have registered at "The Union" if they want us to process things faster.

If you want to register with a third party email address like Yahoo or Hotmail, we need to verify your identity. Send us an email with the following:

1. Your full name
2. Semester class
3. Username that you registered with on SCIMD Forums.
4. Third party email address you registered with.

Please send all this info to scimdforums@gmail.com along with your proof of student status


During this transition period for SCIMD, Any of the following methods of verification are acceptable:

1) Have an SCIMD administrator e-mail confirmation that you are currently a student

2) Have a moderator or administrator of the SCIMD Forums personally vouche for you

3) Scan and e-mail a current (i.e. within 6 months) receipt for payment of tuition

Note, all new accounts are inactive after you register. Please refrain from logging on until the admin has approved your account. Otherwise, the system will lock you out. The admin will send you an email when your account has been activated.
