Fees and Deadlines

Fee Structures for 2022

Pay Annual Fee

Pay Accreditation Application Fee

Organizations seeking accreditation are required to submit a non-refundable application fee following application approval. All organizations participating in the accreditation program pay an annual fee. Fees for interim site revisits conducted before the typical three-year interval, whether initiated by AAALAC International or the institution, are generally borne by the institution and are in addition to the fees below.

AAALAC International determines the group classification during the review of the application. This classification based primarily on the size of the program, the time necessary to conduct a site visit and the provision of other services establishes a fair fee schedule. Accreditation may be revoked if an institution is in arrears for payment of fees.

Invoices are to be paid in full and may not be reduced by taxes or fees payable to the jurisdiction or institution from which payment is being made.
