Affiliate Membership

Thank you for your interest in the Stanford Alumni Association Affiliate Membership! Stanford faculty, staff, interns, residents, fellows, certificate holders, postdocs, Travel/Study participants and Stanford parents all qualify for membership in the Stanford Alumni Association as Affiliates.

The benefits available to affiliate members are:

  • STANFORD magazine (published 5 times/year)

  • Waiver of service fee on Travel/Study Programs & Family Adventures

  • Access to online databases offering thousands of searchable publications

  • Car rental discounts through Avis and Budget

  • Stanford Continuing Studies discounts--15% off enrollment on up to two courses per year

  • Access to the Stanford Federal Credit Union

  • 10% discount on Stanford Bookstore merchandise

  • Discounted passes to Stanford gyms and pools and eligibility to purchase six-month and annual passes

  • Group term life insurance and other insurance programs

  • $300 discount on select Stanford GSB Executive Education programs

Affiliate membership is similar to alumni membership, with the exception of certain benefits that the University reserves for alumni.* While a majority of the exclusive member benefits listed on our website are available to both our alumni and affiliate members, the following benefits are available to alumni members only:

  • Access to the Stanford golf course

  • email addresses

  • Discounted registration and welcome gift for Reunion Homecoming

  • Additional 7 days free library access

  • Access to Stanford Sierra Camp

Please note: Affiliate membership does not provide access to some regional events, most alumni clubs, the alumni directory, the alumni job board or email addresses.

Feel free to contact us at if you have any questions or comments.

*To be considered an alum of Stanford, you must have completed a minimum of three academic quarters as a matriculated, degree-seeking student in a degree-granting program at Stanford.
