Alumni Benefits and Services
Continue Your Winthrop Experience with Alumni Benefits and Services

Graduating students immediately become members of the Alumni Association upon graduation.
A student regularly enrolled at Winthrop University for at least one year who does not graduate becomes a non-graduate alumna/us, while students who completed less than a year may request to be listed as a non-graduate alumna/us with approval from the Executive Director of the Winthrop Alumni Association.
