What is GradFinder?

GradFinder is a site committed to making and keeping schoolmate connections, and is part of a personals network (FriendFinder,Inc.) of 16 different sites that caters to all kinds of people, interests, and desires -- with over 25 million active members worldwide (and growing every day!).

How do I login?

To login to your account,
click here. You will see a member login form asking for your email and password. Some very old browsers do not support cookies (see note above) without cookies you will be unable to login and use many of site's features.

Where is my school?

After you have created your profile and become a free member you will be prompted to drill down a list to find your school. If you cannot find your school in our list, there will be a link to let you add your school. After your school has been approved and added, you can join it.

How do I add myself to my school?

If you are already a free member, just login, find your school and you will be prompted to join the school. If you are not a free member you can
join from here.

How do I update my entry once I am added?

logged in. From here you can modify your main profile by clicking the 'Update your listing' link.

How do I add a picture to my entry?

From the main menu, click

How do I stop receiving emails when people add themselves to my grad year?

Login, select modify your entry, and unselect the checkbox that says: When other grads from your grad year add themselves would you like to be informed by email? This can be found at the bottom of the form.

Why must I choose a password?

You must choose a password so that you and only you can login to your account. The reason for the login is so that you can update your info yourself whenever it may change (such as mailing address). Since updates happen immediately and automatically you do not have to wait days or weeks for your important information to be updated. You do NOT have to choose a password that you use for any of your other accounts such as your dial up account, or email account. I suggest something simple and easy to remember.

How do I add myself to another school?

First
login here, then click Update your listing. From here select the link [ Add other schools or universities to your profile ]. From here you will be taken to a list of countries where you may find any other schools you wish to be added to, just like you did for your first school. When you find your school you will be shown a small form that only asks for your grad year and your school specific comments. Once you fill out this form your full profile will be added to this school.

Will the information I enter be sold or given to companies for junk emailing/mailing?

We will never sell your data to anyone without your permission.

There are no grads in my school. What do I do?

First, add yourself.
Second, tell everyone you know about the service and more will sign up.

I forgot my password. What do I do?

There is a function that will email you your password. This function can be found
here.

What is the Contacts List?

The Contacts List is a place to put close friends and people you must contact often. It is quicker to look these people up because you do not have to visit the school page they are located on. To add a person to your Contacts List simply view their entry and click [Add to Contacts List] beside their name. To view people on your Contacts List click the button at the top of the screen called [View Contacts]. The Contacts List only works if you are logged in.

How do I remove myself from a certain school?

First
login, then click Update your listing. Near the bottom of thispage there will be a list of schools you have linked your profile to. Beside each school name there should a delete link. Click this link to have your profile removed from that school.

How do I unsubscribe from the site newsletter?

We rarely send out system emails but once in a while when we add new major features to the site we will let our members know. If you do not wish to get these emails, login to the site and click
Update your listing. On the edit screen, there is a checkbox labeled "Check this box if you do not want to receive our monthly newsletter." Check it and click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the screen.

How do I change my existing profile picture?

To change your current picture first
log in, then click Update your listing. From here you can upload a new picture over your old picture. When you view your profile after this it may still show your old picture; this is because it is in your browser's cache. To see your newly uploaded picture, simply reload the page. If reloading the page does not work you may have to close your browser and relog in.

First

My spouse and I use the same email address, how can we both sign up?

Each person who wants to become a member must use a unique email address to sign up. We could have made the system let the user pick a username but we decided not to do this because it is just another thing for people to remember (or forget). Also the site sends out emails when people from your class join, and it would not make sense to send these emails to your spouse (or person you share the account with) who probably signed up in a different year at different schools. You can get free email accounts at many websites such as
BreakThru.
