Membership FAQs

What is Membership?

Who can join?

Membership is open to all graduates, former students, current students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the UA.

How do I join?

Join online, call us at 520-626-3700, or download, fill out, and mail in a printable membership form. We accept Discover, VISA, MasterCard and American Express, check, and cash payments.

Who can be a free joint member?

If purchasing a Gold or Platinum level membership, a free joint membership is included. The joint member may be a graduate, former student, current student, parent, faculty, staff, or friend of the UA. Keep in mind however that joint membership requires that the records are linked together.

Can I give a gift of membership?

Yes. You may give the gift of membership online, by calling us at 520-626-3700, or downloading, filling out, and mailing in a printable membership form. Please be sure to indicate that the membership is a gift so we can note that on the gift certificate sent with the member packet.

Will my membership purchase automatically add me as a member to my local chapter?

Yes and no. You will automatically receive info about your local chapter or club periodically from UAAA (no more than two times per month), but you won’t receive the messages that get sent more frequently or urgently by the chapter or club. To ensure you’re in the loop, visit arizonaalumni.com/chapters and contact your local chapter or club about joining their email list.

Member Exclusive Benefits

How do I access my Member Exclusives page online?

It’s simple. All you have to do is log on to the Alumni DirectoryAll users must complete a new user registration and set up your unique user name and password to have access to the site if you have not already done so.

I joined online but did not receive my member ID number in my confirmation; how can I get that?

You can either wait for your membership materials to arrive at your address or contact us.

I did not get my address labels with my member packet. When will I receive them?

Return address labels are mailed annually in the fall to current eligible members. New members received after the fall mailing will receive address labels within three months of joining.

I did not get my calendar with my member packet. When will I receive it?

The limited-edition calendar is mailed annually in the fall to current eligible members. New members received after the fall mailing will receive the annual calendar during the next fall mailing.

Can I buy a subscription to the magazine?

We do not offer subscriptions to the Arizona Alumni Magazine at this time. All UA graduates with current addresses receive the fall issue annually but you must be a member to receive all extra published editions.

Does my membership help me get tickets to Arizona Athletics games and events?

Membership helps you purchase tickets to select away football and basketball games and pregame events. There are, however, times where members will receive exclusive offers to home Arizona Athletics games and events.

 

Billing/Payment information

What does membership cost?

The cost of membership varies by level and affiliation. Visit this website to learn more.

What do my membership dues support?

Membership dues support the UAAA, the only organization at the UA dedicating to supporting alumni, the UA, and future leaders. Supported programs include but are not limited to:

  • Chapters and clubs
  • Scholarships
  • Alumni Career Services
  • Legislative Advocacy
  • Homecoming and nationwide events
  • Awards and Recognition
  • Global Alumni Network
  • Arizona Alumni Magazine, social media, and other communications

Will you automatically bill my credit card annually to renew my membership?

Automatic renewal payments are not available at this time.

Is my membership tax deductible?

Membership dues paid to the Alumni Association are not considered donations because members receive tangible benefits in exchange for their dues payments. We are unable to value the benefits received by our members because they are administrated by various third party vendors who do not track the utilization by each UAAA member. For these reasons the IRS will not allow a portion of the membership to be deductible and we are not able to issue a gift receipt for membership dues paid. We recommend that you consult with your tax adviser for details as to what portion of your membership dues, if any, may be tax-deductible in your circumstances.
