Membership fees: the UfS is offering the following membership fees and packages:

- Annual membership: we will be freezing our annual membership package this Fall term and until further notice
- Golden membership fees (will remain applicable): a life membership gratis for every individual over 85 years of age with 6 consecutive terms at the UfS.
Payment: Members will receive an invoice by email from the UfS. Members residing in Lebanon should settle the membership fees in person (or through a delegate) at AUB’s cashier office (College Hall near Main Gate) in cash or cheque strictly in Lebanese Lira. AUB mandates that anyone accessing the campus should be vaccinated and security might ask for the vaccination certificate; therefore, please have it ready if you are vaccinated or send a delegate who is. Members living outside of Lebanon need to do a bank transfer in US dollars. For bank transfers, details will be sent by email. Due to logistical reasons, members are asked to share their paid receipts with the team once the process is complete. The membership fees payment entitles you to become a term member and thus to participate in the term activities such as study groups, lectures, specially organized cultural events, and UfS social gatherings. Membership fees are to be settled no later than the first week of the term. If the fees are not paid during that period, membership for the term will be canceled unless a compelling reason is presented to the Program Manager.
Refund and Deferment: In line with AUB policies, refund of membership fees is not possible once the term starts. Deferment can be made for one term only when a compelling reason is presented to the Program Manager and no later than the first week of the term. The person whose membership is deferred is automatically considered a member in the following term yet should still fill the online registration form of the following term once it becomes available online.
AUB ID card: As per AUB Policy, only AUB ID card holders are granted access to campus. UfS will issue an AUB ID card to members who do not have Alumni or other AUB IDs and are currently residing in Lebanon. To get an ID card, you will need to fill in an application form and bring with you two passport photos and a copy of your Lebanese ID or your passport. The card costs 30,000 LBP payable in Lebanese Lira at AUB's Cashier. Benefits of the ID: Easy campus access, Jafet Library access, and 15% discount at Casper and Gambini – Med Café.
