OLC membership fees are based on Total Full-Time Equivalent Student Enrollment (FTE) for an entire institution (not just online programs), and are student-only (not including faculty or staff). If you do not know your institution’s total full-time equivalent student enrollment, please contact your institution’s business office, or go online to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). At NCES, look up your institution in the College Navigator, and use the number for “student population.” Or look it up the NCES/IPEDS database. https://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator or https://nces.ed.gov//ipeds If you need assistance, please contact email@example.com.
