Supporters & Friends of USNA Out

USNA Out is an alumni association. As with alumni associations of other colleges and universities, membership is granted to alumni and associate membership is granted to specific categories of others directly related to the college or university. Others who do not qualify as associate members of USNA Out may continue to support us by joining us on Facebook and by making gifts to USNA Out which will directly benefit our membership.


There are no annual “dues” to become and remain a member of USNA Out. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff and minimal expenses for the day to day operations of the organization. All members are encouraged, however, to make an annual membership contribution to help support the USNA Out mission.


We fully understand that some of our members need to control their privacy. As part of the online sign-up process, all prospective members have the choice to “opt-out” from the organizational roster. Their profile data (still required for membership verification) will only be available to our membership administrators [currently only Hall ’75]. Those who “opt-out” will still have full access to view the website as all other members, however, they will not be able to participate in online discussions.

All requests for membership are verified prior to providing access to the members’ areas of
