Membership tiers and fees

  • EMMA will have a minimum membership fee of $100 regardless of student body size.
  • Membership fees are divided by tiers based on the member institution’s total student enrollment, including graduate, professional, and continuing education students.
  • Member institutions are on their honor to select the membership tier that most closely matches their anticipated enrollment during the time period of membership, though institutions that can demonstrate financial exigency may request reduced membership fees.
  • Membership tiers:
    • Tier A: enrollment up to 1,000 students: $100 per year
    • Tier B: enrollment between 1,001 and 2,500 students: $250 per year
    • Tier C: enrollment between 2,501 and 5,000 students: $500 per year
    • Tier D: enrollment between 5,001 and 10,000 students: $1,000 per year
    • Tier E: enrollment between 10,001 and 25,000 students: $2,500 per year
    • Tier F: enrollment between 25,001 and 50,000 students: $5,000 per year
    • Tier G: enrollment above 50,000 students: $7,500 per year
  • Sustaining membership: An institution may voluntarily elect a tier of membership representing greater than actual enrollment. Such institutions will be recognized as sustaining members of EMMA and the funds raised from sustaining memberships will be used to subsidize EMMA development and maintenance for the benefit of all members.
  • Consortial and system membership: EMMA membership fees and policies for consortia and multi-institution systems are under development at the time of this writing.
  • Pro-rated initial membership:  EMMA’s billing year begins July 1. If a member joins later during the fiscal year, the initial membership will be pro-rated.

Invoicing and Payment

  • Invoices will be issued annually on or before June 1st for a membership year beginning July 1st.
  • EMMA would appreciate advance notice of non-renewal of membership, but non-payment after 90 days from the beginning of the membership year will be considered non-renewal.
  • Fees must be paid in USD.
