Click “Next” to continue.

You will need to set an Authentication Phone or Email in order to complete the set-up process for your alumni email account. Please choose a method that you expect to have access to for the foreseeable future, as the number/email you select is what will be used to reset your password if you forget it.

To set an Authentication Phone or Email, click the appropriate “Set it up now” link.

To set an Authentication Phone, choose your country or region, enter your phone number, and click “Text Me” or “Call Me”.

To set up an Authentication Email, enter a valid email address to which you have access. Click email me. We do not recommend using you current @ou.edu address (if you have one); you should use another email account to which you expect to have uninterrupted access.

Only one authentication method is required, but OU IT recommends configuring both options.
