Alumni

Check Out Your Alumni Benefits Here

The Alumni Association Board of Directors recently voted to shift from a dues-paying membership model to a more inclusive program, bringing all of our Matadors together under the CSUN Alumni umbrella without paying an annual membership fee. Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, all alumni can take advantage of Alumni Association benefits at any time at no cost! Upon the expiration date of current annual dues-paid memberships, alumni will not be expected to renew or pay an annual membership fee to continue accessing alumni benefits.

We are also changing the name of our Lifetime Membership program. As of Jan. 1, 2021, Lifetime Members will be recognized as a Legacy Member. This elevated level of membership offers special benefits and continues to help fund our scholarships. In addition to the All Alumni Benefits listed, Legacy Members have access to the exclusive benefits listed below. To upgrade to a Legacy Member, click here
