Alumni Association Membership

Welcome home! All Coyotes are automatically part of the KWU Alumni Association upon graduation, with no dues required! However, we encourage you to consider a lifetime membership, which provides perks like free admission to all fine arts and (regular season) athletic events, library privileges and event invitations, all while supporting the association’s endowed scholarship. Lifetime memberships are $360 for individual and $390 for a couple.  Consider purchasing a lifetime membership today to give back to KWU and support the Association’s endowed scholarship! Email [email protected] for more information.
