How to Apply
To apply for membership with ACCU, please send a formal letter of application, along with appropriate supporting documentation, indicating the type of membership your institution is applying for (full, candidate, international, or affiliate) and verifying that your institution fulfills the criteria for membership of that category. Applications may be sent via electronic or postal mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or One Dupont Circle NW, Suite 650, Washington, DC 20036.
When an application for membership is received, it will first be reviewed by the Membership Committee of the ACCU Board of Directors. If recommended by the Membership Committee, the application will then go before the full Board of Directors for approval. Applicants will be contacted by the ACCU President once a final decision has been reached.
If you have any questions regarding the application process or the status of your application, please contact ACCU at email@example.com.
All institutions pay annual membership dues to the association. For Catholic colleges and universities (all full, candidate, and international members), membership dues are calculated on the basis of FTE (full-time equivalent) enrollment information, with appropriate minimum and maximum categories. Affiliate members are subject to a flat-rate membership fee.
Membership dues invoices for each new academic year are distributed to member presidents electronically. Payment is due in the form of ACH or check made payable to “Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities” by August 31 of that year. ACH information is available on the membership dues invoice.
