Membership in the Mizzou Alumni Association has its privileges.
Members may take advantage of the following special programs:
Graduates of MU who are also paying members of the Mizzou Alumni Association may receive borrowing privileges at no charge. You may borrow books owned by the MU Libraries only. Interlibrary loan privileges, off-site database access and books from MERLIN/MOBIUS Libraries are not included in your borrowing privileges. Please bring your current Mizzou Alumni Association membership card along with the following to the Ellis Library circulation desk:
1. Your Missouri (or home-state) driver's license or Missouri state photo ID card
2. Proof of permanent address (no P.O. boxes)
Your Missouri state driver's license number serves as your ID number. Persons without that number will be asked for their Social Security number. Persons who have outstanding fines, bills or books that have not been returned on their library records will need to resolve those issues before a courtesy card may be issued.
Tiger in Training
Have a new Tiger in your life? Children (two and under) of MAA members receive a free Tiger in Training children's book. Books are sent once a month. Let us know of your new arrivals!
Random Acts of Membership and Event Giveaways
Throughout the year, the MAA hosts Random Acts of Membership to thank members for their support of Mizzou with a special gift. Random Acts can be in-person or online, and past gifts include ice cream from Buck's Ice Cream Place, truffles and an extra discount from the Candy Factory, exclusive, Mizzou-themed items and more. The association also provides giveaways and spirit items for members at select MAA-sponsored events and rallies. Remember to bring your member card to events; you never know when you might come home with a gift!
University Club Membership
Experience the social, leadership and community opportunities at the University Club. Membership in the Mizzou Alumni Association is required in order to join. With your membership, you can now enjoy all the benefits a private social club can offer.
Member Calendar Photo Contest
Want to share your favorite MU-themed photograph with more than 44,000 Tigers worldwide? The association's annual calendar features images from members only. The annual calendar is mailed in November to all MAA-member households.
The student membership program of MAA includes several member-only benefits. Programs and activities such as a free annual Traditions T-shirt and gift kit, the annual Networking Dinner, Beat shirts, access to the Mizzou Alumni online directory, True Tiger T-shirt days and more are for members only.
MAA membership dues help fund the more than $500,000 that the association gives out in scholarships annually. Alumni with children applying to Mizzou are encouraged to have their student apply for MAA freshmen scholarships, and True Tigers (student MAA members) are encouraged to apply for returning student scholarships. The deadline for scholarship applications is typically February 1 for incoming freshmen and March 1 for True Tigers.
