Creating an account

You can sign up for Wahoo Connect using an email address, or an existing LinkedIn, Facebook, or Google account.

Please note: We recommend signing up with the email you have on file with University for automatic approval of your registration. Using an email different from your preferred email with the University may result in a delay while we manually approve your account. We do our best to minimize the delay by approving pending accounts the same or next business day.

  2. Click “Get Started”, “Join Now” or “Start Networking” on the slider images

Step-by-step instructions on how to sign up with…

Information requested during sign-up

Required fields vary based on the affiliation(s) you select on the sign-up form. We have limited the number of required fields to make sign-up quick and easy but have also included optional fields so alumni can share their first-year residence, student activities and major from the start. You can update these and add other information any time once you’ve signed up by clicking on the down arrow next to your image in the header and going to “Edit Profile.”

Account approval

Currently, we preload undergraduate and graduate alumni using the preferred email address you have on file with the university. If you register with a different email address, you may experience a delay for manual account approval. We do our best to approve pending account on the same or next business day.

Please note there are several reasons you may not be preloaded in Wahoo Connect:

  • We don’t have your preferred email address on file
  • You share an email address with another alumnus, like your spouse or partner
  • You have asked to not receive email communication for the University and/or the Alumni Association
  • You’re a recent graduate and the University has not yet updated your status in their database.
