You received a great education and most likely have a diploma hanging on your wall to prove it. But there are some other perks that go with being a Gettysburgian, and we encourage you to take advantage of them.
Career Services for Alumni
The Center for Career Development and Office of Alumni Relations provide lifelong career assistance for all Gettysburg College alumni. Whether you are in your very first job hunt, between jobs, thinking about graduate school, or changing career fields, Gettysburg is here to help. See how.
Alumni from the Classes of 2014 and later can keep their student email accounts. If you need to reset your password, please call the Gettysburg College IT Helpdesk at 717-337-7000 during regular business hours.
Alumni from previous classes can use their student email addresses, but messages sent to this address must be forwarded to an email account that you specify in myGettysburg (read below about myGettysburg).
At myGettysburg, you can maintain email forwarding for your @gettysburg.edu account; search the on-line alumni directory by class year, location, field of work, employer, and more; update your profile and contact information, check your giving history, read what your classmates and fellow alumni have been up to, and share your own news and photos.

Students will attend workshops about the admissions process, the campus visit, and the application process. Alumni children will be the guests of Gettysburg College students who will take them to class, host them in the residence halls, and eat with them in the campus Dining Center. Parents are encouraged to attend parallel sessions, including a workshop about financial aid, the value of a liberal arts education, issues related to the transition to college, and an insider's look at what is happening at Gettysburg College.
To request an official copy of your Gettysburg College transcript, follow the instructions provided by the Office of the Registrar.
An unofficial transcript of courses completed after 1995 may be available via CNAV. For most alumni, their CNAV user name and password are the same as your myGettysburg Alumni user name and password. Contact myGettysburgAlumniHelp@cnav.gettysburg.edu for help with your user name or password, or if you have trouble accessing your unofficial transcript once you have logged into CNAV.
