BU Associate Memberships

BU Associate Memberships are for homeschooled students interested in participating in BU Social Events. There are a limited number of Associate Memberships available, so we encourage you to apply early in the school year.

To be eligible for an associate membership:

  • Students must be 14 years old by October 1 of the current academic year.

  • Students must be homeschooled.

    • Home-educating is defined by BU as those students for whom a letter of intent to homeschool is or will be on file with the local department of education for the current academic year. Students enrolled in a full time, online public or private education program are ineligible to participate. Part-time cottage schools, part-time online schools, and other homeschool cooperative class enrollment does not preclude membership.

  • Students must submit an application for a BU Associate Membership if they are not already enrolled in a BU Program (BU Electives, BUPAC, or BU Athletics). The form may be found HERE.

    • BU Associate Memberships must be approved by the BU Leadership Team. To facilitate this process, please be as complete as possible when completing the application. 

  • Associate Members must send a separate check (made out to Bluegrass United) with their first BU Social Event Registration.

    • The fee is $30 for the first student and $15 for each additional sibling. This fee is only paid once per academic year. The membership fee is included with BU Program Registration (BU Electives, BUPAC, or BU Athletics) for current BU students and does not need to be paid again. This fee is only applicable to BU Associate Memberships. If a sibling is already enrolled in a BU Program, the fee is $15 for each additional student.  If the Associate Member Fee is not included, the student will not be registered for the event.
