Membership Fees

Please contact membership@internet2.edu if you have any questions about membership dues or network participation fees

Internet2 annual membership dues and network participation fees vary by member category and participation level. See the chart below.

Discounted system membership arrangements are available to streamline Internet2 membership for multiple campuses belonging to the same system of higher education. Please contact membership@internet2.edu for more information about this option.

Fees for Higher Education members (dues and network participation fees) follow a scale-based model, detailed on this PDF. Contact membership@internet2.edu for information about Sustaining Contributions (SC) specific to your institution.

Federal agencies qualify as Affiliate members of Internet2, and the fees for Federal Affiliate members follow the fees for other Affiliate members. However, as some federal agencies’ memberships may be managed through department-level or multi-agency membership arrangements, parties interested in Federal Affiliate rates are encouraged to contact membership@internet2.edu with membership rate inquiries.

The following table provides dues and network participation fees for all categories and levels of members other than Higher Education and Federal Affiliates. Affiliate and Industry members pay dues and fees based on a tiered system of Levels. Unlike Higher Education members, Affiliate, Federal Affiliate, and Industry members do not have to be physically connected to the Internet2 network as a condition of membership.
