The life member payment plan is the membership category that allows you to pay your dues over the course of five years. A single life membership is $850 over five installments of $170. A joint life membership is $1100 over five installments of $220.

Do new grads have to purchase a membership?

Our gift to new grads is a discounted membership rate for the first year post graduation.  New grads will receive their membership materials a couple of weeks after their degree has officially been cleared by the Office of the Registrar.  Make sure your information is up to date so that you can take full advantage of the first discounted rate year.

Is there a chapter or alumni group in my area?

There are 30 chapters nationwide and many other alumni groups that can help you stay connected to the Arkansas Alumni Association.

I’m a member of the Razorback Club, why do I need to be a member of the Alumni Association?

If you love coming to chapter functions, and supporting scholarships and great programs that enable students and alumni across the world to stay connected to the University of Arkansas, you should be a member of the Arkansas Alumni Association. Your membership goes directly to all of these great causes and more!

I give money to the University all the time so that makes me a member, right?

Any contributions you made went directly to the area you designated or to the Annual Fund. Your membership dues are a separate commitment that return many products and services to you as a member perk.  A portion of each annual “Pride”, three-year "Passion", and life memberships goes directly towards the need-based scholarship fund. It’s just one more reason your membership in the Arkansas Alumni Association is so important.
