Getting a Uniqname and Directory Profile—
Alumni

Alumni of all three U-M campuses can create a uniqname or check to see if they already have one using a link on the Alumni Association's website. Once alumni have a uniqname, an MCommunity Directory profile is created automatically for them.

  1. Go to the Alumni Association's Get a Uniqname page.

  2. On that page, click the Alumni Uniqname Management link.

  3. Alumni are then asked to provide this information:

    • Full name
    • Current e-mail address
    • Gender
    • 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. As part of the process, alumni can enter an e-mail address to which they want their @umich.edu mail forwarded. The mail forwarding address is then entered in their MCommunity Directory profile, where they can update it as needed.

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).
