Essential “To-Dos” for Life Beyond Pepperdine

Are you a recent Pepperdine graduate? The Pepperdine Alumni Association is here to serve you and help you stay connected to the Pepperdine family. Here are a few things you need to do upon graduating to stay connected with Pepperdine:

Update Your Alumni Information

In order to stay up to date on the latest events and information about Pepperdine, and to receive important alumni materials (like your Alumni ID Card!), we need to know where to best reach you. Please update your contact information at pepperdine.edu/alumni/update with your preferred e-mail and mailing address within 90 days of graduating.

Take Advantage of E-mail Forwarding

Your time at Pepperdine is coming to a close and, unfortunately, the same is true of your @pepperdine.edu e-mail account. Within 90 days of graduating, this e-mail address will no longer be accessible or available. Fortunately, you can still retain the Pepperdine name in your e-mail address! In place of a full-service e-mail account, Pepperdine provides all alumni with a customized @alumni.pepperdine.edu address, which can be forwarded to any third-party e-mail provider.

Visit the Pepperdine Marketplace

The Pepperdine Alumni Association is proud to offer a Waves- exclusive business and service directory. Locate Pepperdine alumni-owned/affiliated businesses, reach Pepperdine-affiliated businesses and professionals, and search for Pepperdine- exclusive discounts all through the Pepperdine Marketplace!
