Alumni – Your Handshake account is still active, but we’ll need to submit an Email Switch Request to the folks at Handshake, so you can get back into the system. Please email us with your email of choice, and you’ll receive a verification email from Handshake (usually within 24 hours). Just click on the link in the email, log in, and enter the email verification code to complete the process. Then you’ll be all set to schedule your in-person or phone meeting (please choose the alumni option). *** If you’re alumni who graduated pre-Handshake (2015), please register for your Handshake Account. It’s a fast and easy process.

Once you’re in Handshake, we have created helpful Handshake guides to get you started.
