Financial costs for NEASC membership may include annual dues, candidacy fees, evaluation fees, and the expenses associated with on-site peer review visits. Institutions assume the cost of travel, lodging, and meal expenses for Visiting Team members.

The annual dues for schools who are Members or Candidates for Membership in the Commission on International Education are set by the Board of Trustees each year in accordance with the By-laws of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. At its meeting on April 27, 2017, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges Board of Trustees approved the Association's budget for fiscal year 2017-2018.
