Congratulations - Now what?

The UNC Alumni Association is dedicated to connecting UNC Bears of all generations together with one another and their university.  Your diploma is your membership card and our membership is a global network of all living UNC alumni - and that includes YOU!

And here's the good news - NO ALUMNI DUES. 

The UNC Alumni Association does not collect dues. We'd rather spend our time supporting you!  The UNC Alumni Association can help you kick-start or restart your career; help you celebrate and share your Bear Pride; and provide you with opportunities to pay forward your success toward the success of future Bears.  So no matter where life takes you next, the great news is that you'll always be a Bear and we'll always be here to help.

Once a Bear, Always a Bear!
