Benefits

More than 42,000 PLNU alumni live and work throughout the world. We are proud of you, and we want to stay in touch with you. Anyone who has completed 24 or more units from PLNU is automatically a member of the PLNU Alumni Association.

Here are some of the benefits and services we provide for you, our alums!

Hotel Partnerships

PLNU partners with seven Bartell Hotels in San Diego to provide discounted rates to PLNU family and friends. In addition to providing a discount, Bartell will donate 10 percent of the total room cost to our University Fund benefiting student scholarships.

PLNU family and friends receive rates that are below best available rates. Hotel rates are based on availability and all appropriate taxes and hotel fees apply. To guarantee a special rate, each guest must ask for the "PLNU rate" at the time the reservation is made and we suggest you book early to ensure availability.

Insurance Discounts

Did you know many insurance companies (auto, home, etc.) provide discounts to customers who are members of an alumni association? If you have completed 24 or more units through our university, you are automatically a member of the PLNU Alumni Association. Contact your insurance agency today to ask about possible discounts.

529 College Savings Plan

It is now possible to buy university tuition units for your children, who may enroll years from now, at today’s rate. 529 College Savings Plans, accepted by PLNU and many other universities nationwide, deliver significant savings on the cost of a private college education.

PLNU is committed to helping families access a high quality education, and participates in Private College 529 Plan and ScholarShare College Savings Plan.

With Private College 529 Plan, no enrollment or annual fees are charged, allowing 100% of contributions to go toward the purchase of tuition. Families are able to purchase tomorrow’s tuition at today’s prices — no matter how much tuition rises or what happens in the financial markets.

With the ScholarShare College Savings Plan, families can enroll in several different investment options, including age-based programs. ScholarShare is a 529 plan providing federal and state tax deferral on any earnings. Money withdrawn to pay for qualified higher education expenses is also free from state and federal income tax.

PLNU will accept many 529 plans. Please contact Student Financial Services with questions.
