Finalising your membership
- Once we have reviewed your membership application you will be informed via your online account whether your application has been successful. You may also be required to revisit your application, for example if we require further documentation from you.
- If your application is successful, you will need to make an online payment for your membership fees to activate your RCR membership. This will be displayed on the My membership tab of your online RCR account.
- Unless you join in June at the start of the membership year, the subscription fees are a pro-rata amount, based on when you join the RCR. The full fees will be due at the beginning of the next membership year.
- Direct debit payments are not available for new members, but if you are a UK member, you can set up a direct debit for membership fees for the following year.
- Following payment, we will make your account active and email you the final details of you membership.
- Please note that membership of the RCR does not entitle you to use MRCR after your name, or the designated letters of FRCR, which are only applicable to Fellows.
