How It Works


Students can join the Alumni Association and receive exclusive invitations to free events, access to a desirable list of discounts and e-newsletters that connect them to life on Grounds and class activities. Student life members can choose to pay nothing while they are on Grounds but still enjoy the perks of being a member.

How do I join, and how much are dues?

Joining is easy. Join online or stop by Alumni Hall, located across from Memorial Gym (211 Emmet St S). We are also present at events throughout the year, including Class Council and Trustee dinners, Taste of Charlottesville, Bingo Nights and First Year Food Fest.

As a student life member, you can choose the payment plan that works best for you. Once you are fully paid, you are a member of the Alumni Association for life.

Payment plan options

Post-Grad Installment Plan
You can defer dues until after graduation, meaning you pay nothing and receive great benefits during your time on Grounds. Payments can be deferred if you go to graduate school or need more time to find a job. You can cancel your membership at any time with no obligation. The total cost for your membership on this plan is $500.

Pay In Full Now
You can pay for your membership now and save $100. Cost is $400.

Pay As You Go
You can also choose to pay as you go, meaning you make smaller payments over multiple semesters. These plans allow you to become a paid in full life member before you graduate and to save $100, making the total cost of your membership $400. Choose from four, three, and two year options. Graduate a member for life!
