SAA Membership FAQ

Frequently asked questions about membership in the Stanford Alumni Association (SAA).

Who can join SAA?
There are three types of SAA membership:

  1. Alumni Membership: must have completed a minimum of three academic quarters as a matriculated, degree-seeking student, in a degree-granting program at Stanford.
  2. Affiliate Membership: open to all Stanford Affiliates including Stanford faculty, staff, interns, residents, fellows, certificate holders, postdocs, Travel/Study participants and Stanford parents. An affiliate membership is similar to an alumni membership, with the exception of certain benefits that the University reserves for alumni. Learn more here. Still have questions about Affiliate Membership? Contact the SAA Membership department at membership@alumni.stanford.edu.
  3. Friend of Stanford Membership: open to non-Stanford Affiliates. A Friend of Stanford membership has identical benefits as an Affiliate Membership, but different pricing. Learn more here.
