Join us for our 104th Annual Meeting in Orlando!

Over the past century, AACRAO has positioned itself as a leading authority on student admissions, academic records, international education, and enrollment management. Plan to join us at our Annual Meeting in Orlando--which promises four days of workshops, sessions, roundtables, and plenty of networking opportunities. 

Our Program Committee is working diligently to develop a program that reflects the scope and breadth of our members' professional responsibilities, as well as meets the changing demands and needs of the professions we serve. We look forward to having you join us in Orlando and helping you obtain the knowledge and skills that ensure student and institutional success. 

We have been alerted that a third-party agent is offering the AACRAO Annual Meeting attendee list for sale. We have sent a cease-and-desist letter to this company. Please know that AACRAO respects our members’ and meeting participants’ privacy, and we do not release email addresses to outside entities. Should you receive further communication, from either this company or a different one, please alert AACRAO at

Host a Campus Tour

AACRAO is now accepting proposals for Campus Tours/Visits for the 2018 Annual Meeting in Orlando. AACRAO is taking the next step in collaborative knowledge-sharing and experiential professional development by including institutional tours as part of the elective programming at upcoming conferences. A pilot campus visit at the University of Phoenix during the 2016 Annual Meeting, and a subsequent tour at Capella University in Minneapolis in 2017, yielded positive member feedback—with many attendees expressing interest in future institutional tours located at AACRAO meeting sites. 

The institution will be responsible for associated expenses including transportation, food, and staff. To begin the process, please contact AACRAO Meetings at
