We welcome new members! If you are an individual, student or institution committed to alternative higher education for adults, please join our association of people from across the country who are engaged in action learning, reflection, and discussion. The membership year is effective for one year from the date membership dues are received.

All categories of membership are entitled to one voice and one vote each in the Alliance. Membership benefits include a listing in our membership directory and reduced rates for the AHEA annual conference. Institutional membership benefits also include a Member Institution listing on our website.

Organizational membership is open to any college, university or another group that has implemented or plans to implement an alternative degree-granting program for adults. The annual institutional membership now covers three (3) individuals from the institution which allows each of them to attend at the AHEA member’s rate each year at the conference. Membership benefits also include a member institution listing on our website.

  • Annual Fee: $120


Individual and Student memberships are available to individuals who are interested in the purposes of the Alliance.

Student members have the same responsibilities and receive the same benefits as individual members. Student membership requires an advisor’s signature on the membership application.

  • Annual Fee, Student Membership: $35


Emeritus membership is open to individuals who have retired from the profession and are interested in the purposes of the Alliance.

AHEA has the right to review all applications for membership and to accept or reject the applicant depending on the applicant’s qualification for institutional membership as defined in AHEA’s membership criteria.

In order to mail in your information and payment instead of electronically, please download, use, and submit an AHEA Membership Form. You will be able to complete the form on your computer if you download the file and use that file copy.
