2.) Associate Member Institution (AMI) – a nonprofit, accredited college, university or system/district in the U.S. or Puerto Rico, where total Hispanic enrollment constitutes at least 10% of the total enrollment, or where a minimum of 1,000 Hispanic students are enrolled at the undergraduate or graduate level.

Institutional Annual Membership Dues (Campus)
*Total enrollment is defined as headcount including full-time and part-time students taking “for-credit” courses, whether at the undergraduate or graduate level.

System/district membership is for central administrative offices only. It is the system/district that will be considered a member of HACU. Campuses within a member system/district are not considered HACU members, unless the campus itself is a dues-paid member. System/district members are not eligible for certain member benefits (e.g. scholarships, discounted conference registration rates). HACU offers complimentary membership to any system/district when all the campuses within that system/district are members of HACU.
B. International Institution - an institution of higher education abroad that documents that it is a legally constituted entity authorized to operate in its country according to the rules and regulations required by its government.
International Annual Membership Dues: $ 2,010 USD
