Alumni Career Services
Welcome to Alumni Career Services at University Career Services. Our staff of professionals is dedicated to assist you with a number of options to help you advance in your chosen career path. With the ever-developing economy, we understand the importance of connections and preparation to meet the changing times. We encourage you to view the list of options available for continuing your pursuit of your passion. We offer Georgia State University alumni two levels of service, Tiers I and II.
You are welcome to visit University Career Services at 66 Courtland Street, Atlanta, GA 30303, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are located on the second floor of Student Center West, Room 270.
For either level of service, we must verify Georgia State University alumni status, for which a unique verification card will be issued. To do this, you must submit specific information regarding your academic program of study using the University Career Services Alumni Career Services inquiry form. We do not mail verification cards; they must be picked up in person. We ask that you present this card each time a service is requested along with a government-issued photo ID.
Note: University Career Services will provide Tier II services to recent Georgia State University graduates for up to one year after graduation from Georgia State University at no fee. After the one-year grace period, a Alumni Career Services program fee of $75 will need to be assessed in order to obtain Tier II services. Tier I services do not have an associated fee. See the Tier I and Tier II tabs for more information.
We look forward to seeing you!

- University Career Services (UCS), while desiring to provide services to all Georgia State University Alumni who seek assistance with their career planning, may only be able to provide limited services and resources for some requests. This has to do with UCS not being able to offer specialized services for some academic areas. In such cases, UCS will provide referrals as needed and will discuss our service limitation in advance to registering for services, based on information provided on the Inquiry Form.
- It is possible UCS may need to refer a registered Tier II user to an outside service and/or terminate services. If this occurs within the first three months of a user’s registration and payment for Tier II services, a full refund of the $75 will be provided. If this determination occurs after the first 3 months and the user has already used services, a refund may not be provided. While not an exhaustive list, such referral/termination situations would typically arise when:
a. A user has had three or more no-shows for scheduled appointments with staff (a no-show is defined as missing a scheduled appointment without advance notification of at least 24 hours); and/or
b. UCS determines that the user is not benefiting from the services provided by UCS; and/or
c. The user is not following through with the career development assignments, career exploration tasks, or recommendations of the staff; and/or
d. The user is disruptive to the function of the service and/or the UCS office.
- Alumni Career Services is currently only available for Georgia State University Alumni who can personally visit University Career Services, which is located on the second floor of Student Center West, Room 270, at Georgia State University.
- UCS does not provide any mental health counseling services, and such service requests cannot be honored. We will assist with referrals into the community.
- This program is only for Georgia State University Alumni who have completed a program of study and have earned a certificate or degree from Georgia State University.
- The program is not a community service for the general public; community members will be referred into the community. Community is defined as non-Georgia State University and the general public.
- Membership in the Alumni Association does not provide access to Alumni Career Services. The Alumni Career Services program, which is administered by University Career Services, is not associated with the Georgia State University Alumni Association. University Career Services is a department of the Division of Student Affairs at Georgia State University.
