Benefits and Other Resources
An APU student is considered an alum after completing a minimum of 24 units, and as long as he or she maintains good standing with the offices of Student Financial Services and Residence Life. Alumni have access to many benefits and services, including the following:
Adopt-a-College Classroom Sponsorship
Teachers! Would you like to feature APU in your classroom? Contact the Office of University Relations at (626) 815-4500 to receive an APU pennant and pencils for your classroom this year.
Many car insurance companies including AAA will give their customers a discount on rates with proof of alumni status. We provide proof of alumni status free of charge. Just fill out the verification form.
Alumni ID Card
With this ID card, alumni receive discounts to on-campus athletics events and theater productions, access to on-campus libraries, and an on-campus daily parking pass (parking passes can be picked up from the parking booth in Lot A or in the Campus Safety office in Adams Hall). The ID card can be purchased for $5.
Moving forward, all alumni from 2010 and after will have access to a virtual ID card, at no cost, as long as they sign into the APU Mobile app. When the virtual ID card becomes available, students and alumni will be able to use it as identification only, but we are working with University Services to expand its capability to on-campus purchasing. APU does not have a system in place to effectively collect purchasing data, but we hope that once the card launches and interest in it increases, we can consider putting something in place to collect data.
APU Email Address
All students who had active network accounts during the fall 2010 semester or attended anytime after that point are able to retain their APU NetID.
APU NetID features include:
- Continued access to home.apu.edu. Easily request transcripts, view your academic record, and update your contact information.
- Continued access to your APU email address, using it as a professional email address for networking with contacts and staying informed about relevant news and events.
- Still having access to unlimited Google Drive storage.

Parking passes can be picked up from either the parking booth in Lot A or in the Campus Safety office in Adams Hall. Limited access to online library resources is available to alumni by visiting the library homepage and searching by 'Subject' for 'Alumni and Community Patrons' under the 'Articles and Databases' tab. Please allow up to five business days after alumni ID is issued to update library accounts to alumni status. For access problems, please contact the library.
We are pleased to offer all APU alumni free access to RightNow Media, which is like Netflix for the Church. Their large library of thousands of video sessions can be accessed anytime, anywhere. Their creative team films and produces RightNow Media Originals featuring teaching from respected teachers and pastors. They also distribute video resources produced by more than 100 other major Christian publishers and ministries.
