Membership & Benefits

Membership to CCA's Alumni Association is free and automatic if you've completed at least two semesters.

Even those who did not formally graduate can take advantage of our valuable Alumni Association membership benefits, as long as you keep your personal information updated with the alumni office.

Your alumni membership card identifies you as a CCA alum and secures your eligibility for all alumni benefits. To receive your membership card, email alumni@cca.edu.

Alumni can borrow books from the collections (Bay Area residents only), access electronic databases and archives with their CCA username, and can schedule research visits to the physical archives and special collections by emailing Jennine Scarboro.

Shop CCA

CCA alumni are incredible makers, craftspeople, designers, and entrepreneurs. On Shop CCA, we celebrate the creative work produced by the alumni community as well as those who support local makers through their small businesses. Help shape cultural transformation by shopping CCA!

We want to hear about what you’re making and/or how you support local makers. Share your shop with us for a chance to be featured: email alumni@cca.edu.

CCA Arts and Crafts Fairs

Twice a year the San Francisco and Oakland campuses turn into a bustling arts and crafts fair to support local makers. Participation is free and open to all CCA students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

We announce when vendor registration opens via the Alumni e-newsletter (typically one to two months prior to the event) so be sure your contact information is up to date and your account is set to receive emails from CCA.

The fairs are organized by the Office of Student Life. See photos from the most recent fair.

CCA Public Programs

Attend college wide lectures, exhibitions, events, and more throughout the year.

Keep your contact information current to receive updates about events happening on campus. Also be sure to visit the college’s event calendar for upcoming events.
