Membership and Benefits

With over 345,000 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 $149 fee*.

Graduates fom the Class of 2020 and Seniors graduating with the Class of 2021 can join for a low one-time $49 fee* when you join by June 30, 2021. Select the "current student, degree not yet received" $49 option at checkout to become an alumni member! 

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 $149 and renew at $49 annually.
