Alabama Alumni Magazine is an excellent choice for advertisers who want to reach a savvy audience of well-educated readers who Roll with the Tide! Our award-winning quarterly publication is mailed to nearly 30,000 University of Alabama National Alumni Association members. Additional copies are distributed to state and local officials. Advertising space is limited, so that each ad can engage better with our readers.


Alabama Alumni Magazine reserves the right to refuse any ad and request any necessary corrections in design, spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and writing style; only well-designed ads for quality products will be accepted. Web addresses used in ads must be accessible when the artwork is submitted.

Prepayment is required for first-time advertisers. If the correct artwork is not received by the stated deadline, or an ad is canceled after confirmation of space, the advertiser will be billed for half the cost of the contracted space rate.

The National Alumni Association welcomes family-friendly advertisements, and does not advertise for the following activities: charitable or nonprofit organizations, higher education outside of the UA System, political campaigns, religious groups, any product or service that does not align editorially or which poses a conflict of interest for the NAA or The University of Alabama.


When a due date falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline will be extended to the next business day. If allotted advertising pages are filled before the space deadline, no additional reservations will be taken, and advertisers can be added to a waiting list in case additional space becomes available
