To become a member of the Alumni Association all you have to do is make a minimum donation of $25 to any department, program, or scholarship of your choice while meeting one of the following criteria:
- Have obtained an associates, bachelors, or master degree from UofSC Aiken
- Be a former student who did not receive a degree
- Be a friend of the university who has expressed interest in supporting alumni activities
Members of the Alumni Association have access to a broad set of benefits via a combination of PacerPerks and local offerings. For more information about membership benefits, head over to the Alumni Benefits page.
Councils and Advisory Teams
Alumni Councils are designed to build relationships among alumni and create networking opportunities for participants. Each council determines its own needs and works with the Alumni Office and the Alumni Board to ensure the stated goals and activities are consistent with the purpose of the Alumni Association.
In areas where councils do not exist, interested individuals can serve on Alumni Advisory Teams. Members of these teams receive special communications from the alumni office, and may be asked to be an advocate for the university and participate in discussions in person or online.
