How can I obtain my username and password?
If you have an email address on file with the College, go to the automated password recovery page. If we do not have an email address for you, please e-mail your full name, your birthdate, your major, and your class year to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-729-2586 and staff will respond to your request.
How do I change my password?
Visit the "Change Password" page. If you don't know your current password (which is required to change it), see the previous questions above for help.
What's my username?
The basic formula for usernames is the first seven letters of your last name plus your first initial, underscore, and full class year. For example, the username for Friedrich Schiller '58 would be 'schillef_1958'. For alumni from recent classes, your username is the the same as it was during your student days, followed by your class year. Contact the Alumni Relations Office at email@example.com or 1-800-729-2586 with questions.
When I try to update my information it shows my spouse's. How do I update my own information?
It appears that your spouse is still signed in to the alumni network. Simply sign out and sign back in using your own username and password, and your information should appear on the form.
I updated my address or changed my preferences using the online form. How long will it take this new information to appear in the Directory?
Once you submit the information, it is normally recorded in the College database within 10 working days.
I’m really puzzled by this system. Can I get help?
Technical help is available via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. For comments about the site's content, design, etc., please e-mail email@example.com.
The privacy of your personal information is our top priority. Only you can update your personal information, and only members of the Carleton community with passwords (alumni, faculty, students and staff) can view your Directory information. You may limit the information that appears to other alumni in the online Directory. Carleton College has a strict policy never to release any personally identifiable information about alumni to third parties.
The information in the Directory is for official College and Alumni Association use, and also for personal communication between alumni. Use of the Directory for any other purpose, including commercial or political communications or solicitations, is strictly prohibited. Misuse of the Directory will result in loss of access privileges. Report misuse to the Alumni Relations Office, firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I want to host a Carleton gathering in my area and want to contact people using the Directory?
Please contact the Alumni Relations Office. Staff will discuss your planned event with you and can help you advertise it appropriately.
