|Institution's total full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment as reported in the Federal Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Systems (IPEDS)||Total Annual Fee|
|Under 2,500 FTE||$3,000|
|20,000 or more FTE||$12,000|
Massachusetts institutions wishing to join SARA should take note of the above fee schedule. The SARA fee due to the DHE is in addition to the fee to be paid to NC-SARA. In order for the DHE to review a Massachusetts institution's application to operate under SARA, the Massachusetts DHE SARA Fee must be paid first. For Massachusetts institutions applying to join SARA, a check should be made payable to “Commonwealth of Massachusetts” and should be mailed with “Massachusetts SARA Application Fee” in the memo line to:
|US Mail||Overnight/Courier Payments (e.g. FedEx, UPS, etc.) ONLY|
|Commonwealth of Massachusetts DHE
P. O. Box 419752
Boston, MA 02241-9752
|Bank of America Lockbox Services
Commonwealth of Massachusetts DHE 419752
2 Morrissey Blvd.
Dorchester, MA 02125
After the DHE has approved a Massachusetts institution to operate under SARA, the institution will receive instructions for the separate payment to NC-SARA.
