Getting a Uniqname and Directory Profile—
Alumni

Alumni of any U-M campus who do not already have a uniqname can create one online. Once alumni have a uniqname, an MCommunity Directory profile is created automatically for them.

  1. Go to UMICH Account Management's page for creating a uniqname.

  2. You will be asked to agree to abide by Responsible Use of Information Resources (SPG 601.07).

  3. Next, you will verify your identity so your U-M record can be found by providing this information:

    • Full name
    • Date of Birth
    • Year of first U-M degree
    • One of the following: Alumni ID (10-digit number found on mailing label), UMID (found on U-M ID card), or last four digits of Social Security number.
  4. You will then be able to choose a uniqname and set your UMICH password.

Getting Alumni Status

U-M graduates receive alumni status automatically. Graduates who already have a uniqname and MCommunity Directory profile keep these and have their alumni affiliation added to their directory profile.

Former students who have completed at least one semester of a degree-granting program are eligible for alumni status. Former students who did not receive this status automatically can request it by contacting Gift & Records Administration (888-518-7888 or fill out a web request).
