Who is considered a MassArt alumnus/a?
For a number of years, MassArt has publically defined an alumnus/a as any individual who holds a degree or certificate, or has completed at least two or more full semesters of classes.
How do I request a transcript or diploma?
Instructions for requesting a transcript
from the Registrar’s Office and an official diploma
are located on the main MassArt website
Why are there password protected portions of the online alumni community and who can access these pages?
The most important benefit of the alumni community is the fact that alumni can search a complete database of alumni, complete with contact and employment information. The security of this information is of the utmost importance to the alumni relations office, so we must password protect this portion of the alumni community.
Only MassArt alumni have access to the password-protected areas of the online alumni community. According to the alumni association, any person who holds a degree or a certificate, or has completed two or more full semesters is considered an alumnus/a. If you believe that you should be considered an alumnus/a and you can't find your name during the "first time login" process, please e-mail
the alumni office or call 617-879-7020.
How do I get my temporary password?
If you already receive emails from the Alumni Office (e-Connection or e-Connection Special Announcements) your unique nine- or six-digit temporary password is located in the bottom (footer) section of each email. If you don’t receive emails, or don’t have one saved in your inbox, email
the alumni office or call 617-879-7020.
I forgot my username/password. What do I do?
It is easy to get an e-mail reminder of your username or to reset your password. Simply go to the login
page and click the links to the right of the "Username" or "Password" fields.
What is the benefit of using Facebook Connect?
Complete information about Facebook Connect and how to use it here
Once you complete the initial steps, Facebook Connect allows you to use your Facebook username and password to login to the online alumni community. In an age when we have more usernames and passwords than we can remember, this is a particularly useful benefit. Additionally, Facebook Connect also allows you to publish your activity on the online alumni community directly to your Facebook page. This is a great tool if you want to let your friends know that you have registered for an event, read an interesting profile, or found an old classmate.
