Prior to the new model the eXtension assessment was calculated at 0.8% of each Section member institution’s receipt of formula funds from the previous year in the Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) and 1890 Extension (Section 1444) lines. Premium membership fees for 2015 are based on 75% of the 2014 assessment; basic membership fees are based on 60% of the 2014 assessment. "The 2016 calendar year membership for Premium Members is calculated at 0.6% of each Section Member Institution’s receipt of formula funds from the previous year enacted in the Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) and 1890 Extension (Section 1444) lines. The 2016 calendar year membership for Basic Members is calculated at 0.48% of each Section Member Institution’s receipt of formula funds from the previous year enacted in the Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) and 1890 Extension (Section 1444) lines. If an institution becomes a Member after the start of the calendar year, whether a Premium or Basic Member, the Membership Fee due will be prorated from the month the institution becomes a Member to the end of the calendar year." (2015 Membership Handbook)
