If you graduated from any institution, school or college of the University of the Philippines or was a former regular student of the University of the Philippines, having earned at least sixty (60) academic units and not having been dismissed from the university for misconduct or felony, you are eligible to apply for membership to UPAAGLA.
To become a member of UPAAGLA, you must first complete the Application for Membership form and then pay the appropriate membership dues. You have two options. The first option is to become an Annual member by paying the annual membership fees of $50.00. The second is to become a Lifetime Member where you pay a one time fee of $125.00. However, if you paid annual membership fees for three(3) consecutive years, you automatically become a lifetime member.
We strongly encourage new members to sign-up as a Lifetime members to avoid the trouble of paying the annual dues. Lifetime members will be honored for life. Their names will be listed permanently in our Lifetime member roster. Starting 2013, we will provide Lifetime special privileges in special events sponsored by UPAAGLA, such as ticket discounts, seating preferences, etc.
If you are not sure whether you want to become a Lifetime member or not, you may start by becoming a Annual member. If before the end of the year you decide you want to become a Lifetime member, you simply contact our Membership Committee chair person, Ms Natalia O Matitu-Mercado, six (6) months before the annual membership expires and remit the balance you owe to be a Lifetime member.
