Alumni Services

To build and strengthen meaningful relationships with The American University in Cairo (AUC) alumni and create a passionate and highly engaged community with lasting ties to their alma mater, the Office of Alumni Engagement offers the following services and programs to the AUC alumni community.

Alumni ID Cards

To continue to have access to the AUC New Cairo and Tahrir Square campuses after graduation, you need to issue an AUC alumni ID card. 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. You must provide proof of full vaccination to be able to issue your alumni ID card. 

By issuing your ID you help support scholarships through the AUC Fund.

AUC Email Account

Create an AUC email account by filling in the Alumni Email Creation form. It is free and for life!

Alumni Endowed Scholarship

Established in 1983 by the International Alumni Council, the Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund receives contributions from AUC alumni worldwide to provide partial support for the education of sons and daughters of fellow alumni. For more information, visit the AUC scholarships page.

Admission and Registration

AUC admits the top five undergraduate applicants who are children of alumni and are within five percent below the cut-off score for the academic semester they are applying to. To know more about the admission process and requirements, visit the AUC admissions page.

Class Rings

Showcase your pride, and order your AUC class ring. It embodies both your academic achievement and your precious memories made at AUC. The ring is custom-made and comes in two variations: pure silver for EGP 1,000 or silver with gold for EGP 1,850. On one side, your graduation year is engraved, and on the other side, your degree, whether it is BA, BSc, MA, MSc, or PhD. Visit our office to purchase a class ring and other jewelry items from AUC. We accept cash and credit card payments, but as a cashless community, we encourage you to pay by card.

Alumni Merchandise 

Visit our online store for a great range of AUC Alumni branded merchandise, a lovely keepsake for you, or a great present for a fellow alum.

Counseling

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, can 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. For more information regarding these services or to reserve an appointment, call +2.012.0277.0301 or send an email.

Career Services
