Accessing Your Alumni Club's Website

  1. First, select your alumni club from the list on the portal's landing page. Be sure you know your iMpact login and password -- this is needed for performing any administrative tasks.

  2. When you first visit the club’s page, click on “Log in.” This will take you to the WEBLOGIN page. If you don't know your information, please follow the prompts on the weblogin page to reset your password/obtain your information. 

  3. If your contact information is incorrect in the upper right hand corner (when you’re logged in), please take a moment to ‘Update my profile’ to reflect your new information. The email address that you have on file with the university will be reflected on this website.

It is not a requirement for the general public to log in to the system, but we hope they will to ensure their contact information is correct. We are working on other incentives to get them to log in – featured content, exclusive access to things, etc. Our IT team will also be exploring the possibility of a social media login to the portal in the coming months.

Please ask the alum to update their contact information; you can try again to add them as an officer in a day or two.
