Welcome & FAQ

Welcome to the new Advancement website – the one-stop shop for events, news, making a gift, and interacting with the Brockport alumni and friends community!

We invite you to stay connected and utilize some of the tools available to help you engage with fellow Golden Eagles. Creating a member profile (see the FAQ below for login instructions) enables you to navigate password-protected areas of the website, search for classmates, and submit your own or view others' updates on life after Brockport in the "Class Notes" section. Creating an account isn't required to update your contact information, register for events, explore alumni benefits and services, and many more items you can find by surfing through the site. We have organized this platform in larger buckets of information to help you find what you are looking for.

Below, you'll find a list of some of the most commonly asked questions and concerns. If your inquiry isn't on the list, please feel free to contact the Office of Alumni Engagement at alumni@brockport.edu or (585) 395-2068.

How do I log in for the first time?

If you do not know your Banner ID number, please contact Alumni Engagement at: alumni@brockport.edu or (585) 395-2068.

For step by step instructions, view the YouTube video below.




Once your account has been created, a social media account can be used for the login process. This process is explained in the above YouTube video at the 4:40 mark.

On the bottom of the login page, you will see a variety of social media buttons. Before you choose a social media account to log in with, open a new tab in your internet browser. Using your new tab, enter the address of the social media site you wish to use and log in to that account. Next, return to the alumni site tab and click the social media button associated with the account you have open in the other tab.

Next, you'll have to enter your email and password used when creating your account on the alumni website to connect your two accounts. Please note: If you wish to use a connected social media account to log in to the alumni website, you must be signed in to that social media site in another internet browser tab.

I forgot my password or have an email issue.

On the login page, you will notice a link next to the password box which provides instructions on how to change your password. You will have to enter the email address you used when registering your account, and an email will be sent to you with a link to reset your password.

A message indicating your email address can't be found indicates that the system has a different email address associated with your account. It's possible you are using a different email address, and your account information is not up-to-date. Contact the Office of Alumni Engagement at (585) 395-2068 or alumni@brockport.edu to solve the issue.

How do I access the Online Directory?

There is a link to the Online Directory under the "Connect" tab in the green navigation bar at the top of the page. You must be logged in to view the directory.

How do I update my account information?

You do not have to be logged in to update your info. Simply click "Update My Info" under the "Connect" tab in the green navigation bar at the top of the page. You may also update your info when you are logged in. Just use the different tabs at the top of the page when you are logged in to update different sections of your account. Make sure to always save your changes before leaving a section.

Where can I view or submit a Class Note?

A Class Note is an update on life after Brockport. You will find the link to submit your own and view others' Class Notes under the "Connect" tab in the green navigation bar at the top of the page. You must be logged into the community to view or submit a Class Note.
