We heard you - Pitzer College email accounts are now available for all alumni

As a Pitzer alumnus/a, we are excited to offer you a lifetime Pitzer College email address through a partnership with Google. Your Pitzer email address will be a Gmail-based account accessed through the Pitzer website in the form of FirstName_LastNameYY@pitzer.edu (YY indicates the year of graduation).

If you graduated prior to 2008 and would like a Pitzer Email for Life account, you will need to request an account through Pitzer Alumni Community. If you graduated after 2008, you are automatically registered for Email for Life. Once your request is processed you will be notified by the Office of Alumni Relations of your new Pitzer account and password.  

Please follow these easy steps to set up your account! It’s as easy as 1-2-3 (and 4).

Sign Me Up

   1. Login to The Alumni Community. (If you do not have an account, please select New User Registration)
   2. In the left navigation site menu, click ‘Update Your Profile’
   3. Under Additional Alumni Information (#6), select ‘I Want Pitzer Email for Life’
   4. Click Update

After you have updated your profile, please allow up to one week for your Email for Life account to be processed. You will be notified via email that your account has been activated, so please make certain we have your correct email address on file in the ‘Update Your Profile’ section of The Alumni Community.

Once you receive notification of your new Email for Life username and password, please go to www.pitzer.edu/pitpass, login and fill out the security questions. It also recommended that you reset your password when initially logging in. Every 180 days you will be prompted to change the password for your Pitzer Email for Life, but don't worry–it's quick and easy!

Accessing Pitzer Gmail

To access your Pitzer-Gmail account, use the “Quicklinks,” on the menu bar above, then select “Email for Students." Login with your username and password. At your initial login, you will have an account setup screen asking you to choose a password. Please enter your newly created password (from PitPass if applicable). This password setup is for your  “alternate password,” which is used for access to your Pitzer-Gmail through Outlook , MacMail or other email client software. This also applies to accessing your email with an iPhone, Blackberry or other email-enabled phone or device. Pitzer-Gmail is almost identical to regular Gmail (if you have a Gmail account).

Please note: You cannot access web-based Pitzer-Gmail from Google directly; it can only be accessed through Pitzer’s website.
