Founded in 1970, the UMBC Alumni Association is the official representative body for more than 77,000 UMBC alumni in Maryland and throughout the world. At UMBC, you’re an “Alum from Day One,” meaning that all UMBC graduates are automatically members of the UMBC Alumni Association for life and for absolutely no membership fee. The goal of the Alumni Association is to serve the interests of alumni through educational, charitable, social, or cultural programs and involve alumni in the advancement and support of UMBC.
Alum From Day One – We consider every student an “Alum From Day One.” In addition to the many general alumni events throughout the year, alumni are also invited to participate in convocation, celebrate graduation at December and May “Grad’s Day” festivities, and congratulate our newest class of alumni at commencement.
