  • Alumni Member:  All alumni are considered members of the association upon graduation. This includes individuals who have earned associate's, bachelor's, graduate, professional or honorary degrees from Ohio State, as well as medical resident graduates of the university. Alumni Members will have access to the opportunities listed below:
    • Career Management Services
    • Program 60
    • Social Connections (alumni clubs and societies, classmate search, Buckeye Room)
    • License Plates
    • Sports and Spirit (access to football tickets, general athletic tickets)
    • Travel and Recreation (alumni tours, golf course, recreation and physical activity center and Outdoor Adventure Center membership)
    • University Services (lifetime emails addresses, official ring, official transcripts, Ohio State Alumni Magazine, university library access)
  • Alumni Donor:  Alumni who give $30 to any College of Nursing fund are recognized as alumni donors. Alumni donors have access to the opportunities listed above plus early access to purchase football tickets.
  • Life Donor:  Alumni who commit to a monthly gift of at least $10 or an annual gift of $150 or more are recognized as life donors. Life donors receive the beautiful print edition of Ohio State Alumni Magazine and special communications from alumni association President and CEO.
