Lifetime Email Address

Alumni receive access to a lifelong email account that they can take with them when they change jobs, schools, or cancel their other email addresses. The email is hosted by Google and comes with many of the same features as a regular Gmail account. Six months after graduation, student email accounts are deactivated. To sign up, email with your name, class year, and birthday (for verification).

Alumni email accounts are addresses and are different than student accounts.


Unlimited Career Services

UNC Asheville alumni have unlimited access to the Career Center. Services offered to alumni include career coaching and advising, graduate school and job search strategies, and job and networking opportunities. Alumni are also invited to attend our Career Fairs. Alumni must have an active UNC Asheville alumni email address to access Career Center services. To find out more, email or call 828.251.6515.

UNC Asheville Common Word Community Read

The Common Word Community Read, curated by Wiley Cash ’00, brings the UNC Asheville community together to engage in a collective educational experience. Each semester, one book will serve as the focus of numerous virtual and in-person lectures and discussions that will allow participants to delve deeper into the text. Participants will read one book each semester, gaining insights and sharing ideas in a welcoming and respectful environment.

Alumni Pin

A new tradition was started by the Alumni Board of Directors in December 2017. Before commencement, every student will receive an alumni lapel pin to commemorate their transition from students to alumni. We hope that this pin will serve as a reminder of what it means to be alumni and the importance of staying connected. We invite you to complete this form or call our office at 828.251.6512 to request a pin, so you can keep your alma mater close to heart and represent UNC Asheville in your daily life.
