Student Checklist


Before You Arrive

Create your uniqname and set your password

Before clicking the link below, make sure you:

  • Have already sent in your Enrollment Reply Form (with deposit for the Full-Time program if applicable) and allowed two weeks for receipt and processing.
  • Have your UMID at hand, which is found in your Admissions letter. You will need to use it for the uniqname request process.
  • Have your One-Time Identifier (OTID) at hand. The ten-character OTID is sent to you after you return your enrollment form. You will use your OTID with your UMID for the uniqname request process.
  • Contact the ITS Campus Support Desk phone (734) 764-HELP if you do not have your OTID and it has been at least two weeks since you mailed your enrollment form.

Please note the following:

  • Once you have created a uniqname, please be sure to continue the process to create the password at that time. If you create a uniqname then stop the process before creating a password, you will need to call the ITS Accounts office to set your password.
  • Your One Time ID can only be used once to successfully create one uniqname. In case of failure, you can re-use the same OTID until successful.
  • If you have misplaced your OTID, policies do not allow ITCS to reissue an OTID via e-mail. Students must call 764-8000, option #1 to get an OTID reissued.

Update your iMpact Personal Profile

iMpact users such as other students, faculty, our web recruiters, and our administrative staff will use your Personal Profile information to contact you, so you will want to be sure your Profile is correct and up to date. You may need to update this information again after you arrive on campus since your address, phone number and e-mail will probably change. Use the menu items on the left menu bar in "Personal Profile" to update the various fields. For name and education changes, contact our Admissions office.

Ensure your iMpact Personal Profile is correct and up to date

Update your Personal Profile with your contact information. From your profile, you will want to print face cards to bring to your first classes.


Before You Leave

Determine what resources you can continue to use

Students who graduate from U-M become alumni and therefore maintain a life-long relationship with the university. An affiliation of "alumni" is added to their MCommunity Directory profile after they graduate and certain computing and technology services continue for life.

Former students who have completed at least one term of a degree-granting program are eligible for alumni status and can request it by contacting Gift & Records Administration at 888-518-7888.

Students who leave without completing at least one term lose their affiliation with the university when they are no longer listed by their department as Active in Program. They lose access to U-M computing services after a grace period.

Update your contact information in your iMpact Personal Profile

By updating your Personal Profile, you will ensure your colleagues can keep in touch with you.
