If you need both your username (e-mail address) and password for your account, please use our online Identification Information Request Form. You will be asked to answer several questions to verify your identity, and once your submission is received, a Customer Service Representative will send your username and a temporary password to the valid, e-mail address you specify on the form.

My temporary password expired.

Temporary passwords issued by our Customer Service staff or by our automated password recovery system expire at 11:59pm Pacific time, on the day after they are issued. If your temporary password has expired, please resubmit your request in the same manner in which it was originally requested.

A temporary password was sent to my e-mail account, but I did not request one.

The automatic password retrieval system requires a last name and username to be able to send a temporary password to the e-mail address listed in our database.It may be possible for another user with a similar name to mistakenly request a temporary password for your account. The temporary password, however, is e-mailed to the e-mail address on file for the username, so your alumni account will not be compromised in this case.

In the event that you are sent a temporary password when you did not request one, you will need to visit the alumni website and reset the temporary password to a permanent password. Please note that your temporary password is valid until 11:59pm Pacific time the following day it was issued. Once you login with the temporary password the system will prompt you to enter a permanent password.

If the temporary password has expired, please used the automated password recovery system to request that a new temporary password be sent to you via e-mail.
