Membership fees, enrollment headcount & period of membership:

Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools voted to adopt a dues structure on a sliding scale reflecting three levels of graduate headcount enrollment, as shown below. Headcount enrollment includes all graduate students except those in programs leading to the MD, PharmD, DVM and JD.

NEW! Beginning this year, the MAGS Executive Committee decided to eliminate the multi-year payment option and return to annual payments only. If your institution already renewed for multiple years, your advance membership payments will be honored accordingly. If you would like to confirm your membership status, please contact

NOTE: Benefits of a paid membership include reduced rates for registration at the MAGS annual meeting and eligibility to nominate students for any of the graduate student awards, including the 3 Minute Thesis Award, Distinguished Thesis Award, and Excellence in Teaching Award.

Graduate headcount enrollment 1 year dues
1-1000 $ 200
1001-4000 $ 250
4001 + $ 300

Dues notices are emailed to member institutions each September. Payments can be paid online by credit card.
