Membership & Benefits
The size of the Wright State University Alumni Association has grown to over 100,000 graduates. The Alumni Association Board of Directors voted and approved changes to dues-paying members of the Alumni Association. Effective August 1, 2014, all degreed alumni are members of the Wright State University Alumni Association.
All degreed alumni who have earned an associate, bachelor, graduate, or professional degree from Wright State, which includes graduates from the Boonshoft School of Medicine and School of Professional Psychology are now members of the Alumni Association with the rights and privileges based on their level. The three levels of membership are: Green, Gold and Life Gold.
All alumni are Green members and receive affinity opportunities and benefits. Benefits include, access to Career Services, alumni events, green and gold business directory, access to alumni online community and many more. View our Benefits Table.
Members who previously paid annual dues will now maintain similar status in the new Gold Member level by making a tax-deductible donation of $50 or more cumulatively in a fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) to any of the hundreds of Wright State University funds. Gifts can be spread across several funds to reach a minimum donation. Gold Members will be eligible for premium benefits. Premium benefits include, Alumni Zone at men’s home basketball games, Barnes and Noble Bookstore discount, The College Store discount, Academic Search and Business Source Alumni Edition – access online and many more.

Note: Both graduates and nongraduates who were members of the Alumni Association as of January 1, 2014 can continue as Gold Members with an annual gift of $50 or more to the university during each fiscal year.
LIFE GOLD MEMBERS
For life members who joined prior to the model conversion or who were making life membership installments (and continue to make installments for the life of the payment plan), much remains the same. You will become a Life Gold Member. The opportunity to purchase life membership was discontinued in August 2014. The Alumni Association will introduce new Life Gold Members each year as part of our Heritage Society Inductee Ceremony. Wright State University Heritage Society Members, cumulative lifetime giving of $10,000 or more, include friends (non-alumni), however they would not be eligible for Wright State University Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship or to vote for Alumni Association board members.
