Enroll as an Official Texas Ex

Texas Exes membership is ideal for alumni/friends who want to stay connected to UT, access the Texas Exes member network, and ensure their voice is heard in support of their alma mater. There’s no better way to show pride with purpose.

Only membership in the Texas Exes keeps you closely connected to your alma mater and other alumni through The Alcalde member-magazine, networking opportunities, and access to the online UT Library System. What’s more, if you join as a Life Member then 90% of your membership dues are placed in a permanent endowment that continually supports the many programs – like Camp Texas, student scholarships, community engagement, and advocacy on behalf of UT – that radically shape experiences and improve lives. Unlike shirts that fade and games that end, a membership in the Texas Exes positively impacts you, the University, and the Longhorn faithful. And that’s something you can feel good about.

* Texas Exes membership dues are 80% tax deductible. JOIN TODAY at www.texasexes.org!
