Fees and deadlines
Fee structures for 2017
Organizations seeking accreditation are required to submit a non‑refundable application fee following application approval. This fee covers the cost of the initial site visit. Newly accredited programs also pay a prorated annual fee during the initial year of accreditation. Annual fees cover the cost of regular site revisits. The cost for interim site revisits conducted before the three-year interval, whether initiated by AAALAC International or the institution, will be borne by the institution.
AAALAC International determines the group classification during the review of the application. This classification, based primarily on the size of the facility and the time necessary to conduct a site visit, establishes a fair fee schedule. The established fee schedule may be amended as necessary to reflect the costs of operating the accreditation program. Revocation of accreditation may occur if a unit is twelve (12) months in arrears for payment of fees.
