Two Meetings, One Venue.
After careful consideration of our members' time and resources, we began co-locating our Technology and Transfer conferences. Each meeting is independent; however, they will share plenary speakers, refreshment breaks, social events, and the exhibit hall. Learn more about the meeting. 


The AACRAO Technology Conference
Using technology to develop integrated student systems and services is critical to the success and survival of today's higher education institutions. The AACRAO Technology Conference brings together technology practitioners and managers to share ideas, information, and solutions to improve and maximize the effectiveness of student services. Whether you use homegrown software, vendor solutions, open/community source applications, or a mix or all three, the Technology Conference is your leading forum to understand the next generation of information management.

The AACRAO Transfer Conference
With the increase in non-traditional routes for educational attainment, transfer has become a central focus in higher education. AACRAO's Transfer Conference participants will explore methods of facilitating transfer of academic credit and serving transfer students, as well as developing best practices that members can use as guidelines for handling transfer issues.
