Create membership code(s) to assign to membership fee(s) Module / Codes / Course – Membership Codes
Set up a course to track memberships Setting Type to membership… changes label Catalog Code to Member Code
Set up Member Fee Levels.. With Member Code Simple: One Fee.. One code You do NOT have to enter fee level Membership codes ( use the Catalog Code..like in 7.2)
Multiple Fees.. One Codes Everyone gets same Discounts You do NOT have to enter fee level Membership codes ( use the Catalog Code..like in 7.2)
Multiple Fees.. Multiple Codes Allows multiple discount levels So THESE codes (vs Catalog Code) will be assigned to Student
When building classes.. Create fee(s) with Member Codes If the registrant has a MEMBER code matching one of the special fees.. They will be assigned that fee
A. Create Membership Course Assign Member Code to a fee B. Build Regular Courses Create Fee(s) w/Member Code To Review….. I. Create Courses

Here’s a quick tip! Create a new course for each membership billing period If your membership fee is based on a year, create a new course annually. If your membership fees are based on term, create a new course every term.
Registrations requiring memberships
Staff view: get warning.. Web: upsell membership
Participants will automatically receive the membership rate if: A Course Fee has a matching membership Code They have a member code in their Member Codes The first day of the course is on or before the expiration date of their membership code
Students registering on ACEweb will see the membership requirement
If you have Discounts for Membership, Promote membership with ACEweb
Taking it to the next level
Limiting a course to members only You MUST be a member of one of the groups listed in the Membership Requisites field
If participants must have multiple memberships Anyone enrolling in this class must be members of all groups listed. (separate by list with ampersands) Not Commonly used….
Manually Edit a membership date Right click the membership code on the name screen to Edit the membership date
You may EVEN “Gift” a membership … Allows you to add an on-the-fly member code (and set a expiration date) on any student record Note: this does NOT “connect” the student to a Membership Course
Family memberships On the member course, establish a fee that includes the word “Family” The word Family can be anywhere in the fee name..
Family memberships Make sure all family members are grouped, then register any family member in the membership course using the family fee
Confirm that the membership will apply to all family members Family memberships
Renewing Memberships If a member renews their membership, the expiration date of their membership is updated to the new expiration date For “Rolling” membership.. Early renewal extends current Expiration date
