KU Alumni Online Community and Resources

The KU Alumni Association’s website is more than just a website– it’s your connection to more than 300,000 other loyal Jayhawks through the online alumni community.


Did you know that you can register on our website and update your information? Registration is free for all alumni, and we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. Registration also gives you access to search the online community to find classmates.

Profile Questions

First, check to see if you’re already registered.


Go to, enter your last name and click “Find.”

If there’s a circle button next to your name, click the button to fill the circle and then click “next” at the bottom of the page.


On Step 3, you’ll need to enter your 10-digit alumni ID. This is NOT the same number as your KU ID. It’s a number that our database assigns to your alumni record.


You can find this number on your KU Alumni membership card (paper card or digital card in the app), on the back of your Kansas Alumni magazine, or in a recent email from us. 


Or, contact us at to get your ID number.

If the person has authorized others to contact them, you will see the option “send an email” by their name. 


The other person’s email address will not be displayed. Rather, a blind email box will appear that allows you to send an email to the other person through our system.

Share your news with your former classmates and fellow Jayhawks! Career changes, new jobs, weddings, births and more— submit your information here and it could be published in a future issue of Kansas Alumni magazine.

You may also unsubscribe from all emails if you prefer, but we hope you won’t! Click save to update your preferences.


Please note: Even if the box is checked, it does not mean you’ll receive emails from that category. If you are not a current student, for example, you will not receive emails about the Student Alumni Network. 


Your 10-digit alumni ID is a number our database assigns to each record. It is not the same as your KU ID.

  • On your membership card
  • In the KU Alumni app under “Member Card” or “Alumni Card”

An email with instructions will be sent to your primary email address (the one where you receive emails from the KU Alumni Association).


The email will come from If you have spam-blocking software in place that refuses emails from unknown sources, please add this address to your trusted senders to make sure the email is delivered.

The number of Flying Jayhawks on a trip can range from six to 50, but is typically somewhere in between. Some travel programs also include groups from other colleges and universities.

There are several reasons why you might not receive the email with instructions to reset your password.


  1. Verify that you are registered. If you are not already registered, you cannot reset your password. Try the first-time login process to make sure you are registered.
