We encourage individuals at institutions or affiliated and associate organizations who have responsibilities related to admissions, registration, records and/or related services to join, learn, and share with their colleagues across the great state of Wisconsin.

Membership Definitions

Institutional Members

Institutional Members shall be institutions of higher learning located in the State of Wisconsin that are:

  • Accredited (or a recognized candidate for accreditation) by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, or
  • Listed in the latest version of Transfer Credit Practices of Designated Educational Institutions, published by American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), as having programmatic accreditation in one or more areas.

Associate Membership

Associate Members shall be individuals affiliated with either of the following:

  • Professional schools in the State of Wisconsin granting degrees beyond the Bachelor’s level, or
  • Postsecondary, proprietary institutions that conduct admissions, records, and registration activities through a separate office or division.

The Board may also recommend associate membership for other institutions of post-high school level in the State of Wisconsin that do not meet either of the two criteria above.


Affiliate Membership

Affiliate Members shall be those individuals affiliated with organizations that are not educational institutions, yet have purposes consistent with the Corporation's purposes.  The Board shall approve the admission of Affiliate Members upon receiving a request from a qualified organization.


The annual fee for institutional members is paid by each institution based on the enrollment reported for the preceding year's fall enrollment. Affiliate organizations are charged per individual, while associate organizations are charged the same rate as the smallest current enrollment threshold group. Institutional and organizational memberships include two voting representatives.
