Computing Accounts for 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.

Create a Uniqname

  1. Go to Uniqname & Account Setup (for Alumni).
  2. Verify your identity by providing this information:
    • First and last 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 your U-M ID card)
      • the last four digits of your Social Security number.
  3. 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.
