FAQ

Will I have to log in or register each time I use the app?

No. Once you log in the app will remember you each time it’s opened.

Why do I have to enter my birth date?

Your birth date is an extra security measure. For example, there may be two John Smiths living in Chicago, IL who graduated in 2001. Adding the birth date verification makes sure these two don’t get mixed up and confirms your identity.

I don’t see my name listed.

First, make sure you’re entering your name as it appears in your record with Purdue University. Nicknames may not work. Most likely, we have your full or birth name in our database.

I bought or upgraded my Purdue Alumni Association membership through the app, but it is not reflected on my Member Card.

It typically takes 24-48 hours for new memberships to process. If you still don’t see your correct member status after two days, please contact us at purduealumni@purdue.edu or 800-414-1541.
