Registration Help

Access to VUconnect requires registration, and registration is open only to Vanderbilt University alumni (including medical house officers/fellows) and students.

To register, you’ll need to identify yourself, and you’ll need to provide your four-digit code. Then you’ll choose your user ID and password, and you’re connected. You’ll only need your code to register on your first visit to VUconnect. On future visits, all you’ll need to enter is your user name and password.

Step 1: Enter your information.

Registeration Step 1

• In the first step, you’ll enter your first and last name and your 4-digit security code. You can find this code in the VUconnect card or email you received from Vanderbilt recently on the mailing label of Vanderbilt Magazine or other Vanderbilt magazines you receive; your code is the last four digits of the long number above your name on the label.)

If you need help getting your code, email or call the Help Desk at (615) 322-5578. Help is available weekdays 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. CST.

If you can’t find your name, check for misspellings. Check that you have supplied your name and other data correctly.

If you’re still unable to find your name, email Email or call the Help Desk at (615) 322-5578. Help is available weekdays 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. CST.

Step 2: Select your username and password

Once you’ve entered your data and clicked the Find My Record button, the system should automatically find you and now you are ready to create your username and password.

Registration Step 2

About your user name and password

  • Once you’ve selected your user ID, it can’t be changed.
  • Passwords must be at least 6 (and no more than 20) characters long. You can change your password at any time after registering (in the Account Services area).


If the system tells you you’re already registered - you don't need to register again. Simply enter your user name and password when prompted. If you’ve forgotten your user ID or password, go to the VUconnect home page—or within the Account Services area, click on "Forgot your user ID / password?"

If you don’t remember registering, however, or if you are still having difficulty, email or call the Help Desk at (615) 322-5578. Help is available weekdays 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. CST.

If the system tells you your four-digit VUconnect code doesn’t match use the Back button on your process to go to the previous screen. Verify the information you entered, and try again.

If you’re still told the code doesn’t match, click here and supply the biographical information requested. That information will go directly to Vanderbilt’s VUconnect administrator at our Help Desk. You’ll get an email from us when we’ve solved the problem, so please be sure to include your email address.
