Alumni Perks

Everyone in the UC Alumni Association family (all UC alumni) receives these FREE perks and services:


Alumni Connections

Alumni Networks
Connect and interact with alumni within our college, national or affinity networks.

Homecoming, Alumni Weekend, Bearcats at the Ballpark and Bearcats Blitz are just a few of the 400 or more events we host each year.

The University of Cincinnati Alumni Association offers a wide-array of volunteer opportunities for UC alumni.

Our simple alumni directory allows users to find names and class years of alumni without logging in to our website.

Insurance & Travel

Travel Program
Our unique program allows you to see the world with fellow Bearcats without having to worry about any planning or added costs.

Discounted rates are available at hotels near the University of Cincinnati area.

License Plates
When you get your official UC license plate, you also support scholarships for UC students! UC’s share of the annual special-plate fee ($25 out of the $35 total) goes to fund scholarships awarded through the UC Alumni Association.

We've partnered with our friends at FreeWill. You can use their free online tool to write a will — or create a list of documented wishes that you can bring to the lawyer's office to get things started.
