Just one female graduate of an institution of higher learning. Plural is alumnae. (I know most English speakers seem to use alumni, but technically that is plural, referring to an all-male or mixed-sex group.)

A*lum"na (#), n. fem.; pl. Alumnae (#) . [L. See Alumnus.]

A female pupil; especially, a graduate of a school or college.
