Membership options available

- Corporate Program
Open to 2-year, associate degree-granting colleges accredited (or in the process of accreditation) by one of the six regional accrediting agencies. Dues are based on a three-year moving average calculation of adjusted enrollment data (based on IPEDS) to reduce variation in member dues during periods of significant enrollment change. Adjusted enrollment is calculated by adding full-time students to three-fourths the number of part-time students.
