Alumni ID Cards 

To obtain your alumni ID card, visit the Office of Alumni Engagement in the Administration Building, room P002 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, Sunday through Thursday with your proof of vaccination.

You will update your contact information, pay a fee of EGP 300, and then proceed to the ID center to be photographed and receive your card. We accept cash and credit card payments, but as a cashless community, we encourage you to pay by card at our office since cash payments need to be done at the Commercial International Bank of Egypt's (CIB) branch on campus.

Free Counseling on AUC New Cairo campus

The Psychological Counseling Services and Training Center at the psychology department offers free and confidential services to AUC Alumni (based on availability and match). Counselors-in-training, who members of the psychology faculty professionally supervise, might help you deal with a wide variety of stress, anger problems, anxiety, time management difficulties, concentration problems, lack of motivation, interpersonal or family difficulties, and self-esteem issues. Counseling sessions take place on the ground floor in the Humanities and Social Services (HUSS) building. 

Due to the current shift to online operations, remote counseling sessions are done through the use of a secured HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform.
For more information regarding these services or to reserve an appointment, call +2.012.0277.0301 or send an email.
