Types of Membership:

Institutional Membership
All higher education institutions in the state of Missouri that are regionally accredited, or accepted by the MACRAO executive committee, are encouraged to apply for or renew membership every June. The $125 annual membership fee entitles institutions to an unlimited number of individual members. Each institution should designate a "Primary Contact" who will be responsible for paying the annual institutional membership fee and updating the institutions membership roster. Additional members from member institutions may be added individually at any time by clicking Become a Member in the Membership section of the website.

Associate Membership
Associate members are those professionals that are not currently members of the Missouri higher education community, but who are welcome to participate in the organization because of their related function or close proximity to the state. All rights and privileges of regular membership are afforded to associate members with the exception of voting and holding office. Vendors and other professionals are encouraged to join as MACRAO associate members. 

Honorary Membership
MACRAO offers an honorary membership to selected long-time professional and associate members who have retired from the registration, admission, and enrollment management professions. Special recognitions and conference rates are offered to honorary members.
