T Club Information



Mission Statement

As Patriots for life, the T Club exists within the UT Tyler Department of Athletics and UT Tyler Office of Alumni Relations to provide former Patriot athletic letter winners the opportunity to continue to be involved in UT Tyler Athletics once their eligibility has expired through a dual membership with Athletics and the UT Tyler Alumni Association. The T Club provides these former student athletes with the avenue to stay connected and involved in the institution that they represented so well. The T Club also allows us to always acknowledge the dedication and contributions of our student-athletes to the overall success of UT Tyler Athletics. 

Who is eligible?

The T Club was founded to honor our letter winners, preserve their legacy, and enhance the future for other Patriots. You become part of the T Club as soon as you earn your varsity letter and graduate from UT Tyler.  If you complete your eligibility in good standing you are also eligible for the alumni game in each sport.

T Club Membership & Dues 

As one of our more than 3,000 former UT Tyler letter winners, you are automatically a member of the T Club. Those of you who are dues-paying members, we thank you. As a graduation gift from the Department of Athletics and Office of Alumni Relations, the first 12-month membership after graduation is free.  We urge all other letter winners to become active members by completing the online form and submitting your membership fee of $50.
