Why are membership cards digital?
Digital membership cards download to the wallet on your smartphone, so there's no need to wait for a card to arrive in the mail. Your membership card will also be updated regularly as we add benefits for your use.
What can I do with this card?
You can use the digital membership card the same way you use a physical membership card. Just pull out your phone, open your digital wallet and display the card to verify that you are an activated member of the UCR Alumni Association.
What are my benefits?
The UCR Alumni Association offers more than a dozen different alumni benefits, and more are being added all the time. From discounts on automobile rentals, Dell technology, theme park discounts, UCR Bookstore discounts, to savings on GEICO insurance, we've got you covered. Download the card to see everything you can use!
How do I access a specific membership benefit?
For Extension Center discounts, please contact a member of the UCR Extension team at 951-827-4105 and have a copy of your membership card accessible for proof of membership. For Bookstore online discount, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and have a copy of your card.
How long will my annual membership be active for? Will it automatically renew?
Annual memberships will be valid for two years after activation. Members will receive an email once their digital card has expired that will ask them to reactivate their membership.
Do I have to be a member to keep my UCR student email address?
UCR Alumni who graduated after 2010 have access to their UCR email address for life, regardless of UCRAA membership status. For assistance, email email@example.com or call the Alumni Association office at 951.827.2586.
Does my membership provide online library journal access?
No, however, members can access journal databases by visiting any UC Campus Library.
What support is available to help with downloading my card?
Use the link below to access instructions on how to add your membership card to your phone.
I prefer a physical membership card or my cell phone does not have the capability to download the digital card, do I have to download a digital card?
For lifetime members, feel free to continue to use the membership card that was previously issued to you. If you ever need a replacement physical card, feel free to contact our alumni office at (951) 827-2586 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request one.
For annual members, we have discontinued production of physical annual cards. If you would like to join the alumni association and would not like to or are unable to download a digital card, feel free to contact our alumni office at (951) 827-2586 or email@example.com.
Why was the membership change made?
The UCR Alumni Association board of directors voted to shift from a dues-paying membership organization to a more inclusive program that will increase meaningful engagement among our more than 130,000 Highlander alumni around the world. Nothing else is changing other than we are no longer charging dues and the digital card is a matter of convenience.
I am not a UCR graduate, but I used to have an alumni membership to use the campus library. How can I get access to the library?
Community members 18 and older may obtain a UCR library card at circulation desks with proof of address (e.g. driver's license). The fee is $65 for regular borrowers, $40 for senior borrowers (55 or older), and $35 for Watkins Society members.
