Help and FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

I can't log in to the Alumni Community.

Your username and password for the Alumni Community is the same as for your @law.gwu.edu email account (if you have one).  For help with usernames and passwords, please see below.

 

I don't know if I have a username.  Can I look it up?

Most usernames are some combination of your first initial and last name and, for recent alumni, are unchanged from your login information for the Student Portal and Law School email system.  If you think you might have a username but cannot remember, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 202.994.7166 or alumni@law.gwu.edu and we'll look it up.

 

I forgot my password or my password is not working.  How do I retrieve or reset it?

You cannot retrieve your password, but you can reset it on the Password Reset page.  You will need your Login ID# (not GWID), which is a randomly assigned seven to ten digit number.  You can find your Login ID# on your monthly GW Law Alumni e-newsletter.

If you are unable to locate your ID#, please contact the GW Law Alumni Office at 202.994.7166 or alumni@law.gwu.edu for assistance.

 

What is a "special character" for including in my new password?

Special characters are symbols like ! @ # %

 

I don't have my Login ID#.  Where can I get it?

You can find your Login ID# on your monthly GW Law Alumni e-newsletter. 

If you are unable to locate your ID#, please contact the GW Law Alumni Office at 202.994.7166 or alumni@law.gwu.edu for assistance.

 

I RSVP'd for an event with a guest, but my guest's name isn't appearing on the "Who's Coming?" list.

You need to press the "Add" button on the event registration page after you type in your guest's name to ensure they are properly registered for the event. If you were logged in to the Alumni Community when you submitted your RSVP online, you can log in again to change your response or add a guest. Please LOG IN and add your guest to your RSVP. If you registered by telephone or email, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 202.994.7166 or alumni@law.gwu.edu and let us know what to change.
