 Join AACC: Your Investment in Success 

AACC offers membership to individuals and institutions interested in community college issues. Membership is open to individuals, institutions and organizations and is renewable annually.

Membership options available

  • Institutional Member
  • Educational Associate
  • Individual Associate
  • Corporate Program

Institutional Member

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.
