How do I create my SternConnect account?

To get started, click here! A wizard will walk you through the process of verifying your identity and creating an account password. In order to verify your identity, you will need to enter your NYU ID Number.

I already created an alumni account on SWAP (NYU Stern's former online alumni directory); can I use the same login information to access SternConnect?

Alumni active in our former online alumni directory have been automatically enrolled as members of our new community. You should have received an email from the NYU Stern Office of Development & Alumni Relations containing your new login information; your former login information will not work in the new community. Contact the NYU SternConnect support team at or by calling (212) 998-0669 if you need further assistance. You can find your NYU ID Number above your name on any recent mailing from NYU or in most emails from the Office of Development & Alumni Relations.
