Alumni Privileges and Discounts
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:
Alumni Campus Privileges
Center for Career and Community-Engaged Learning
Access to online job board (Handshake), Career Fair attendance, and professional development workshops.
Graduate Program Discounts

Fulbright Scholarship Application Advising
Interested in the Fulbright Scholarship? Graduates of APU are eligible for free application advising.
Library Access and Parking Pass
The alumni ID card gives alumni access to on-campus libraries, an on-campus parking pass, and discounts at APU theater and athletics events. 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. Allow up to five business days after alumni ID is issued to update library accounts to alumni status. For access problems, contact the library.

America’s Christian Credit Union
When you bank with America’s Christian Credit Union (ACCU), you are joining a cooperative of believers that has provided financial services to families, churches, and ministries for more than 60 years. While you might be most familiar with ACCU’s two ATMs on the APU campus, the credit union also serves members across the country through robust online and mobile banking tools. Because of APU’s Wesleyan heritage, all alumni are automatically eligible for membership at ACCU and the many benefits it brings. To join or learn more, visit ACCU online and discover banking with a financial partner who understands your faith and moves you forward!
Note for ministries and small businesses: ACCU is an approved SBA lender for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and is accepting applications for these forgivable loans. Churches, ministries, businesses, and independent contractors seeking a first- or second-time loan can apply online.

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 Now 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.
The software platform APU Connect allows you to reconnect with former classmates, leverage your professional connections, promote small business, give back by mentoring current students, and fully integrate with APU alumni social networks. Sign up today!
