Alumni Accounts

Amherst College provides login accounts to all alumni throughout their lives. These accounts allow them to interact with a variety of College services such as the Alumni website and their Amherst profile. This account does not include an email mailbox. Alums lose their Amherst email mailboxes and addresses about six months after graduation.

Audience: 
Alumni
Features and Benefits: 

Alumni can use the Email Password Reset system to check their username and change their password.

Requirements: 

Accounts are available to all graduating and non-graduating alumni. Students retain their undergraduage usernames and passwords when they graduate.

Alumni Email Forwarding

Upon request, the College will provide any alumnus or alumna with a forwarding email address in the form:
amherst_username@alumni.amherst.edu

Audience: 
Alumni
Features and Benefits: 

The alumni forwarding email service lets you publish a single email address that doesn't change, not matter how many 'real' email accounts you have.

Don't confuse your alumni forwarding address with a mailbox. It is simply a pointer to your real email box.

Requirements: 

You must be an alum of the College--or a soon to be alum--in order to take advantage of this service.

Getting Started: 

You can request an alumni forwarding address or change your forwarding target address on the Amherst College Alumni website.
