Membership for the 2017-2018 school year has ended. We are busy planning for an exciting 2018-2019 school year and will re-open membership renewal and intake for new members sometime in late July. Please continue to check our website or email us with any questions.

2018-19 MEMBERSHIP WILL OPEN by August 1. Payment will be due September 1 for the 2018-19 year.

MEmbership guidelines

  1. Members must work out of their homes.
  2. Admissions must be the member's primary profession.
  3. Members' residences must be in the greater Chicago area.
  4. Members or their institutions must be members of either the Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling or the National Association for College Admission Counseling.

This year’s dues for area representatives will be $250 (plus a small transaction fee for credit cards) for the principal (or only) member. In addition to being listed in CARR brochures, principal members are eligible to participate in the spring counselor luncheons and professional development activities. Supplemental members from the same institution will pay $150, $200, or $250 (credit card transactions will incur a small transaction fee), depending whether they plan to attend 1, 2, or 3 spring counselor receptions. Supplemental members have the same additional benefits as principal members.

CARR no longer offers a brochure-only membership option.

Contact Emma Adebayo for any questions or concerns regarding membership.

Membership Instructions

  1. Please submit one CARR Membership Application below on behalf of all your institution's CARR members.
  2. After submitting the application, please choose one of two options for submitting your membership dues: check (no fee) or credit card (there is a 2.9% service fee). If paying with credit card, select all your institution's membership types below and then use the Cart that appears at the top right corner of the page to "check-out," just like on Amazon.

CARR Membership Application (Available Aug 3, 2017)


Submitting membership dues (Available Aug 3, 2017)

Pay by credit card below by adding all institutional memberships to your cart. Your cart will appear in the top right corner of this page. All credit card payments have a built in 2.9% service fee and a $0.30 transaction fee.


Mail check made payable to "CARR" to:

CARR, Attention Zachary George. 3218 N Halsted Ave, Apt 3S, Chicago IL 60657.

Please include the name of your institution on the check. If your institution is paying by check, please indicate levels of membership via an email directly to Emma and Zak (example: Unique University: 1 Primary member and 1 Tier 2 member: $450.00) This helps the board from guessing membership levels based on a check amount. Checks avoid a credit card transaction fee included below.
