Alumni are defined as former students who have graduated from a certificate, diploma or degree program at George Brown College.

All alumni receive an alumni card from the college approximately four months after completion of their studies.

To ensure the college has the correct address to deliver the alumni handbook, including the alumni card, recent graduates are encouraged to update their contact information.

While you are waiting for your alumni card to arrive, you may access the Library Learning Commons by using your Student ID / Library Card. Once you receive your alumni card, it will be required as identification. This card can be used by Alumni to update their Student ID / Library Card for Library Learning Commons access.

The Library will issue a generic library card to Alumni who no longer have their student photo ID card.
