How do I search the alumni directory?

The online Alumni Directory is a robust tool that allows you to locate contact, employment, and other information of fellow classmates. Access to this information is limited to alumni, and subject to the privacy settings that alumni set in the Alumni Profile.


  • Your valid username and password
  • Alumni Status - you must have completed at least three quarters in a degree-granting program at Stanford


  1. First, please log in to your SAA account. If you are unable to log in, please visit our help with the site login.
  2. Click on the red Find an Alum button located on the left hand side navigation bar.
  3. Enter your search criteria in the relevant fields, and click "Search."

    For example, you could enter "Smith" in the last name box and "Geo" in the first name box, to find "George Smith," "Geoffrey Smith," and other such names.

    You could also select class years from "1976" to "1976," and select "Music" from the "Major" list. This will yield all Music majors from the class of 1976.
  4. By clicking the "Advanced Search" link, you can expand your search using career information, as well as interests and areas of expertise.
  5. To start over, click the "Clear form" button, and enter new search criteria.


  • For extensive help in using the search interface, click the "?" question mark icon in the upper right hand corner of the page.
  • To configure which information in your own record displays to fellow alumni, you will need to click on the "Your Profile" button on the left hand side navigation bar. You can then click the "Privacy Settings" to show or hide information based on your privacy preferences.
