Membership Information

Membership in AICCU

The Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities is the leading Association of California’s Independent Colleges and Universities. We are at the center of state policy concerning legislation that affects member institutions. We regularly convene representatives from member institutions to respond with a single voice on vital issues affecting institutions, provide leadership on key higher education issues, and influence public policy through advocacy, research, and program initiatives.

Member institutions have access to policy analysis, research briefings, and peer-to-peer constituent groups. AICCU also leverages the purchasing power of its member institutions through the AICCU Enterprise Solutions and Campus Edge programs.

Membership Policy

Membership in the association is based upon the following qualifications: Independent, junior and senior colleges and universities in California that are nonprofit, tax-exempt, degree granting, accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), and are committed to contribute to the purposes of the Association, may apply. Colleges and universities with a California branch campus that are nonprofit, regionally accredited, and with the home campus located outside California, may apply for affiliate membership.
