In accordance with Bylaws Article VIII, Section 2.b, the REN-ISAC Board voted in favor of a REN-ISAC staff recommendation that the membership fee structure remain unchanged for Fiscal Year 2018/19 (FY18/19). There will be no increase in the amount of fees paid per classification level.
However, REN-ISAC will make administrative changes to re-align some member institutions with more appropriate fee categories for FY18/19. These changes are meant to right-size how the fee structure is utilized in two ways. First, REN-ISAC seeks to reduce over-reliance on the "all other" fee category, which has been used as a "catch-all" for nearly 50% of member institutions. Second, for U.S. colleges and universities, the fee assessment will be based on the 2015 version of the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, rather than the 2010 version currently in use.
All Management Representatives and billing contacts will be notified via email by September 30 regarding these changes. The email will include a breakdown of the changes, and the difference (if any) between FY2017/18 and FY2018/19 in membership fees for that particular institution.
Those being moved from the "all other" category are non-US colleges/universities, education networks, medical centers, research centers, and institutions we classify as university administration. This change will impact approximately 100 of our member institutions. The impact of moving to the 2015 version of the Carnegie Classification will impact approximately 50 institutions.
Non-US colleges and universities will be assessed based on student enrollment (full, part-time, and graduate combined), using the table below. Colleges and universities in the United States will continue to be assessed according to the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
|Enrollment Range (AU, CA, NZ, and UK Universities Only)||Annual Membership Fee|
|1 to 2,500||$ 1,250|
|2,501 to 10,000||$ 1,500|
|10,001 to 25,000||$ 2,250|
|Over 25,000||$ 2,500|
