Alumni Free Handshake Access

Free access to the UW Handshake platform is available to all UW Seattle and Bothell degreed alumni.

If you are an alum and would like to update the email address associated with your Handshake account, you can do so by adding an additional email address to your account and marking that as your primary email address. Find detailed instructions here, and if you have questions, email handshake@uw.edu.

UW Tacoma alumni should contact their career center at tcareers@uw.edu for assistance. Those who have completed a certificate program only will need to request community member access to the UW Handshake platform.
