1.0Membership Fees

REN-ISAC financial principles are described in the Charter.


To provide for long-term sustainability and to support growth of services and membership, a modest annual membership fee is charged. The fee is per institution, regardless of the number of member representatives. The scope of "institution" when applied to multi-campus systems is described in section 3.2 of the Membership Terms and Conditions.


Fees for FY2016 (July 2015 - June 2016) are unchanged from the rates estabished for FY2015.

FY2016 fees are calculated according to a modified Carnegie Classification (CC) model, based on the CC Basic2010 of U.S. colleges and universities. The 30+ CC classes are mapped to 4 REN-ISAC classes:

Very High Research$2,500
High Research$2,250
Large Master's and Doctoral/Research$1,500
All Other$1,250

Annually, billing for the coming FY occurs in May, with payment due by August 1.


New members receive pro-rated invoices for the FY in which they join.


The fees will be re-evaluated each year, and communicated to members during the first calendar quarter.
