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.
Go to Alumni Uniqname Management.
Click the Create Uniqname button.

Provide this information:
As part of the process, alumni can enter an email 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).
