Step 2 - Application Timeline

Starting and running a successful chartered alumni chapter requires time, commitment, and innovation from many alumni volunteers.

The Alumni Chapters Staff takes the chartered alumni chapter application process very seriously. We know how much time goes into starting a new alumni chapter. We dedicate the time needed to review each application to determine if the proposed chapter is a good fit for the Alumni Chapters program and the Cal Alumni Association.
