When you walked across the stage and moved the tassel on your cap you not only signified your graduation from UMPI but also the beginning of your membership in the UMPI Alumni Association.
UMPI Alumni Association membership comes with benefits. These benefits may change from time to time and will be updated accordingly. Please note that using your benefits may require checking your information against our database to confirm your status so we recommend keeping your information updated with us. Currently, some benefits may be claimed via the ‘honor system’ with select information being taken at the time of service for later verification.
