Association Membership

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.

10% Discount at the UMPI Campus Store

Located on the ground floor of the Campus Center, the Campus Store has been serving students, faculty, and staff for many years. The store hosts a variety of UMPI “North of Ordinary” clothing, Alumni Merchandise, office supplies, gifts, and other memorabilia.  Be sure to ask for your alumni discount at the register.

15% Discount off Membership Rates at Gentile Hall
