About the Alumni Association

The Alumni Association at California College of the Arts is a network of more than 19,000 professionals working in art, architecture, design, writing, and a range of related fields.

Our alumni sustain the college’s mission by shaping culture through the practice and critical study of the arts, and striving for lifelong creative work and service to their communities.

Whether you graduated from CCA last year or many years ago, your alumni status automatically entitles you to free, lifelong CCA Alumni Association membership if you have completed a minimum of two semesters at the college.


To remain eligible for membership in the Alumni Association, and to ensure you receive all alumni communications, you must maintain a current mailing address with the Alumni Association Office.

Please log in to the alumni directory now to update your personal contact information.


Among the many membership benefits, CCA alumni have access to an extraordinary global network of artists, designers, curators, architects, and writers.
