California State University, Fullerton

Campus-Wide ID: Alumni

Cal State Fullerton continues its commitment to protect the privacy of alumni and to comply with all state and federal laws regarding the collection, maintenance and dissemination of Social Security Numbers (SSNs). The California legislature has passed several new laws requiring that universities use an assigned identification number instead of SSNs. University employees that require access to SSNs in order to perform certain functions, however, will continue to have access to them.

Most alumni should have CWIDs. If a CWID is not found when you use the CWID Lookup page, please fill out the Alumni Information Form. Your information will be encrypted and sent to Alumni Records for research; you will be contacted within 10 business days.

Please refer to the FAQs for information about the new numbers, changes in the Alumni Database, etc.
