Upgrade to a Life Membership
Michigan pride never expires, and your membership doesn’t have to, either. Make this relationship last a lifetime by upgrading to Life Membership status.
Special pricing is available for seniors (60+) and recent grads (within five years of graduation). If eligible, your discounted rate will be shown on the final checkout page.
Alumni & Friends
When you upgrade to a Gold Membership, you help provide additional support to key programs and services that impact your Michigan community every day. You will also receive first access to participate in alumni focus groups, reader surveys, and other panels. You will have the opportunity to add this at checkout.
