CSU Services That Continue After Graduation
The support and services available to you as CSU student don’t necessarily end on completion of your degree. As you enter the final stages of your CSU course, it’s important to understand the services you will have continued access to after graduation. Become familiar with what’s available, and use these services to your advantage.
Your student card remains active until 31st March and allows borrowing printed books, DVDS, videos etc (anything in hard copy) until the CSU card expires.
Once you are no longer a current student this facility is not available to you. However, as a special benefit for Alumni Gold and Gold Life members, the CSU Library’s Community Borrower's Scheme (fee - $110.00 per year) offers access to the physical collections of the libraries for those who are able to visit the libraries in person and also access to a wide range of online resources including more than 3,500 full text journals provided through EBSCO's Academic Search Alumni and Business Source Alumni database.
CSU Club Membership
Upon leaving CSU all Club Memberships cease. However, if you wish to continue your association with a CSU Club, you can join as a non-student member by paying a fee. This provides most of the benefits available to current students. Non-student members do not receive discounts on sporting team registration fees
For more information contact the Student Support Officers for your campus.
