The default criteria for each of these alumni groups are as follows:

  • Local Alumni group — alumni who live within 10 miles of the school
  • Non-Local Alumni group — alumni who live more than 10 miles of the school

To update the distance used to generate the group membership, update the public value of the Local_Distance system parameter, available on the System Parameters query on the System homepage.
