The joint membership bundle is designed to provide exclusive benefits for two family members, along with a Student Life membership for your student. We also offer a parent and family membership for $120, but this does not include your student’s membership.

    The expiration dates for Parent and Family memberships are set to the graduation year of your student. If you purchase the joint membership deal, your student will receive a Student Alumni Association membership while they are enrolled. After they graduate, that membership automatically converts into an Alumni CAAA Life membership with no expiration date.
