Memberships expire at the end of the academic year (June 30).  But as a special year-end incentive, we begin offering memberships for the new academic year starting in March.  That's up to an extra four months for free!  For example, if you made your contribution on March 1, you could begin enjoying the benefits of membership immediately, but your expiration date wouldn't be until June 30 the following year.

You can also give a planetarium membership as a gift!  On either the electronic or printable forms, fill out the form as if you are buying the membership for yourself.  Then, include an additional note to indicate that it should be a gift membership, and provide as much information as you can about the recipient (Name, Address, Phone, Email, and Student ID number, if applicable).  On the electronic form, you can use the "Please share why you give to UAA" box for this purpose.
