As of July 1, 2016 the MSU Alumni Association eliminated the dues requirement for membership in recognition of what many alumni have been telling us for a long time: dues are a distraction.
At the MSU Alumni Association, our mission is to continue to enrich your life and those of other Spartan alumni and friends. We exist to create an environment of lifelong growth and enlightenment, and to foster a tradition of service to MSU and the local community. This ensures that future generations of Spartans will enjoy the same abundance made possible by those who came before them.
Dues simply don’t fit into this equation. The MSU Alumni Association wants you to have the opportunity to support whatever extraordinary dimension of this great university touches your heart. If you want to direct your philanthropy in our direction, you’ll help us help more Spartans. But the bottom line is this: we are here to enrich lives and you don’t need to pay dues to reap the rewards.
The shift away from paid membership means that all alumni will receive a basic level of services and recognition from the MSU Alumni Association. Additionally, those that choose to support MSU financially with a minimum $100 per year cumulative contribution will be considered Spartan Loyal and receive an enhanced level of services and recognition.
The MSU Alumni Association provides all alumni of Michigan State University with a basic level of services and recognition, including:
As well as offers from some of our corporate partners:
