HUAA Membership

Change in Dues Policy

On June 7, 2020, the HUAA Alumni Council voted to suspend the collection of monies AS A REQUIREMENT FOR MEMBERSHIP in HUAA and its constituent units for the period beginning July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.

This means that Howard alum do not have to pay dues to join HUAA or their local constituent units during that time period.

This suspension will most likely become a permanent policy as HUAA segues to a dues-free alumni organization. 

This suspension does not prohibit clubs from raising monies to support their activities and operations. Indeed, it is encouraged.

The suspension merely means that alumni are not required to pay a mandatory fee in order to become a member of HUAA or its local constituent units.

Membership in the Howard University Alumni Association is one way to maintain a lifelong connection to alma mater while helping to strengthen Howard's position as a world premier institution of higher learning.

While membership provides essential support (student recruitment and financial contribution) for Howard University, it also gives alumni various ways to stay connected, such as participation in a network of clubs and societies. Members also receive exclusive benefits, from access to the university library system, to discounts on bookstore purchases and car rentals, to voting privileges in HUAA elections.

Former students who completed at least one year of studies at the university (and withdrew in good standing) are also eligible for membership. Faculty and staff of Howard University and spouses of members are eligible to become Associate Members of the Association.
