WFCP Introduces New Member Fee Category and Dues
Wednesday, December 20, 2017

The World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) has introduced a new fee category and raised its Associate Membership rate to ease the burden on members from developing countries.

The Board of Directors revisited the existing dues, which had last been updated in 2014, in early 2017. The Board determined that the Federation’s fee schedule did not capture the differences in development and resources between developing countries. In March 2017, the Board approved the addition of a fourth fee category lower-middle income, bringing the total number of categories to four: Low-income, Low-middle income, Middle income, and High income. Determinations of which is the appropriate category for a member are made according to the World Bank’s country and lending groups classification.

The new category of low-middle income allows the Federation to lower the fees for low-income nations. In order to minimize the loss of revenue, the Federation has increased the Associate Membership rate from $100 to $500. You can see the difference between the old and new dues here.
