Alumni Benefits

Stay Connected and Thrive

As an alum, you are a valued member of the APU community. Alumni Engagement provides events, resources, and benefits to help you stay connected to APU and thrive.

An APU undergraduate student is considered an alum after completing a minimum of 24 units, and an APU graduate student is considered an alum after program completion. All alumni must be in good standing with the offices of Student Financial Services and Residence Life.

Alumni ID Card

With this ID card, alumni receive discounts to on-campus athletics events and theater productions, and access to on-campus libraries. The ID card can be purchased for $5.

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.

Campus Privileges

Through APU’s career network, Handshake, both students and alumni can connect with businesses and organizations for jobs and internships, and network with other Cougars in their industry. Employers may also post positions for APU students and alumni through this online job platform.
