Alumni Discounts & Perks

Whether you’re interested in special discounts and offers, need to request university records, or are shopping for all the best Bearcats merchandise, the UC Alumni Association has you covered.

Everyone in the UC Alumni Association family (all UC alumni) receives these perks and discounts:

The Alumni Insurance Program offers a diverse portfolio of insurance products to meet the needs of alumni and their families. Insure against the unexpected and cover immediate needs with Life Insurance, Health Insurance, Travel Insurance, and more. (Availability of plans vary by state.)

Get more information on all sponsored insurance plans by visiting or call The Alumni Insurance Program at 800-922-1245 weekdays, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. ET.

Our unique program allows you to see the world with fellow Bearcats without having to worry about any planning or added costs.

Plan for the unexpected. Protect your travel investment against trip cancellation, travel delay, baggage loss and more. Plus, make sure you’re covered while you’re away from home for emergency medical care and emergency medical evacuation, if needed. The UC Alumni Association has partnered with USI Travel Insurance Services to offer a plan designed with our travelers in mind. 

When you get your official UC license plate, you also support scholarships for UC students! UC’s share of the annual special-plate fee ($25 out of the $35 total) goes to fund scholarships awarded through the UC Alumni Association.

Discounted rates are available at some hotels near the University of Cincinnati area.

Hosting your meeting, conference or event at the University of Cincinnati provides attendees with a campus experience. Whether you’re looking for a large, contemporary space overlooking Nippert Stadium, or a more traditional event setting, Conference and Event Services staff is on hand to take care of all the details. As a One-Stop Shop, we provide you with one contract, one source of contact and one invoice for all your event needs.

Get discounts on groceries, pharmacy items, online shopping, vision, travel and insurance discounts. Enroll at the discounted rate, or call 1-800-830-7844 (toll-free).
