FAQs

Life takes our alumni to all corners of the globe, and oftentimes graduates need help with records, status changes and more. If you're looking for information and you can't find the answer, check the questions below or contact the Advancement division directly.

  • How can I get a DU alumni pin?

    Signal your alumni pride with a special lapel pin featuring the DU shield emblem, representing strength and longevity. According to tradition, if you meet another alumni without a pin, you're to give yours to that alumnus and order another for yourself, which you can do by contacting the Alumni Engagement Office at 303-871-4108.

  • How can I get a DU alumni license plate?

    If you're an alum residing in Colorado, you can obtain a DU-themed license plate from the state DMV, which requires payment of $50 for customized plates. We also ask that alumni wanting a DU license plate make a donation between $25 and $50 to the school's Merit Scholarship Fund using the License Plate Request Form. Once you've completed the form and your donation, we'll provide the DMV with the proper certification to get you your license plate.

  • How do I update my contact information with the University?

    If your address or other personal information has changed, please contact us or fill out this form.

  • What's an alumni ID card, and how do I get one?

    Alumni cards are provided free of charge, granting DU graduates a 10 percent discount at the DU bookstore and access to check out up to 25 items from University libraries. The card also permits you to access the school's digital databases while on campus. 

  • Can the alumni engagement team help me find someone?

    We can! Many alumni contact us for help finding a friend from their time at DU, though we cannot give out contact information without permission. Simply email us with as much information as you can provide on the person you're seeking (name, year of graduation, area of study).

  • What happened to my DU email address?

    Your DU student email account will expire 6 months after you graduate. However, you have the option to create an email address @alumni.du.edu, which you can obtain via PioneerWeb. Having an alumni email address can be helpful during job searches. Click here for more information.

  • How can I get my DU student records?

    Student and alumni records are held by the Office of the Registrar. You can request transcripts and student information or access records and tax information through PioneerWeb. To request a transcript directly, use this form.
