Alumni email

As a valued alum of Central Michigan University, we want to make you aware of some changes coming to your alumni email account. In 2017, the university began undertaking additional security measures to protect our students and employees from ever-increasing cyber-attacks on our private and personal information. To date, we have more than 100,000 alumni email accounts. However, many of those accounts go unused and become targets for criminals looking to impersonate alumni and gather personal information.

This is where we need your help:

  • If you actively use your email account, please consider forwarding it to another email address. To do so, please see the instructions: Forwarding Email Addresses
  • Effective immediately, you will be required to change your password on an annual basis to retain access to your alumni email account.

For your protection:

  • Never respond to an email request or website asking you to change your password through a link. This is why we are simply letting you know this change will be coming.
  • You should be highly suspicious of any email messages that ask you to take action on your account, and you should look to corroborate the information with other fixed-news sources such as our alumni website, the OIT helpdesk, and Centralight magazine. 

We thank you for helping us to secure CMU and make our campus a safer, digital environment.
