Thank you for your interest in becoming an SAIS member school. Membership is a multi-step process, in large part because all SAIS member schools also go through accreditation. This form is designed to help us determine if your school meets the basic candidacy criteria. There is no fee for this first step and after reviewing your responses to the following questions, we may invite you to continue to the second step, which includes completing the full form, supplying the supporting documentation, and paying the application fee of $500.
We will respond to your candidacy criteria self-analysis within 7-10 business days. If you are invited to submit the full application and supporting materials, the full review of your materials takes approximately 10 additional business days. We may request more information if any part of your application is incomplete or unclear, but we will reach out for that information. Thank you again for your interest in SAIS.
