Joining MACRAO

The Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) connects its members on issues related to the advancement of higher education in Michigan while providing opportunities for professional development.

Our membership year runs from September 1 to August 31. Our organization-based membership format allows each institution to include as many members as they wish. Membership applications are accepted at any time and are reviewed for approval at our monthly Board of Directors meetings. Please note our bylaws do not allow for pro-ration of dues.
