Columbia Alumni Benefits

Upon graduation, School of General Studies alumni automatically become members of the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) and the General Studies Alumni Association (GSAA). GS alumni are provided a broad array of services and benefits which are offered to all Columbia University alumni through the CAA. This includes a directory of alumni clubs, events, and interest groups, as well as a wide range of additional benefits and discounts on things such as arts events, computer equipment, financial products, insurance, lodging and more.

Alumni also have access to many Columbia facilities and programs, including the Columbia library system, course auditing through the School of Professional Studies, the Alumni Travel Study Program, Dodge Fitness Center, and Faculty House. To find out about these and many more benefits available to Columbia alumni, please visit the Columbia Alumni Association.

Online Networking

Columbia Alumni Directory
Connect with other Columbia alumni via the Columbia Alumni Directory. The CAA also offers Columbia Alumni email accounts for those alumni who wish to create one.

LinkedIn
Alumni may connect with their peers via the Columbia University School of General Studies LinkedIn group or the Columbia Alumni Association Network LinkedIn group. To join the Columbia alumni group automatically, set your Columbia e-mail address as your default LinkedIn address. You may also join without a Columbia address, but it may take up to five days to be approved.

Social Media
GS alumni are encouraged to connect with other alumni and current students on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook via the GS Facebook page and the GS Alumni Facebook page.

Center for Career Education

Through one-on-one counseling, publications, and targeted programs and workshops, the Center for Career Education (CCE) helps alumni with career transitions, self-assessment, job search skills and tools, and career planning. Additional resources available to alumni include job postings via LionSHARE, resume and interview assistance, career fairs, and access to the Career Resource Center.
