Paid alumni membership

You are a lifetime member of the VU Alumni Community upon graduating from VU.

VU no longer offers paid alumni membership and will not contact anyone directly to solicit payment, unless we have received a direct query from you personally.

If you believe you have been contacted by somebody who claims to represent VU but does not seem legitimate, please email alumni@vu.edu.au to let us know, or alternatively, you can call the Alumni Relations Office on +613 9919 1017.

  • A Letter of Completion is an official statement from the University that is sent to students once their eligibility to graduate is confirmed.
  • An Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) describes a higher education qualification in an easily understandable way, relating it to the system in which it was issued.
