Membership and Benefits

With over 330,000 graduates, our members stand out as those who are committed to being a part of the university even after graduation. As a card-carrying member, you also have access to special benefits that non-members do not. Membership for graduates is a one-time $49 fee*.

Not a graduate of CSULB? You can join too

We invite parents, faculty, staff, emeriti and friends of the university to become members as well. Associate members (attended but did not graduate from CSULB) and Affiliate members (friends of the university) join for $49 and renew at $25 annually.
