Dues and Fees

The annual dues for schools who are NEASC Members or Candidates for Membership are set by the NEASC Board of Trustees each year in accordance with the Bylaws of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

IMPORTANT: We appreciate that many schools may face budgetary challenges due to COVID-19. In response, the NEASC Board of Trustees has approved the Association’s budget with no increase for dues or fees for the fiscal year 2020-21. Please refer therefore to the dues/fees schedule for 2019-2020:

At its meeting in April 2019, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges Board of Trustees approved the Association's budget for the fiscal year 2019-2020 (commencing October 1, 2019) and the dues/fees schedule for the NEASC Commission on International Education, as indicated below.

Please note, expenses associated with on-site review visits and additional charges such as banking fees, local taxation, or processing fees are paid by the school (the payor) and not deducted from the dues indicated below.
