All alumni have the option to affiliate with the class of their choice. Some may have started with one class but graduated with a different class. This is especially true of December graduates. Your permanent record will always reflect the date of your actual graduation, but you can receive the class letter and reunion information for the class of your choice and have your donations credited to that class as well. If you would like to make a change in your class affiliation, please contact Alumni Records at firstname.lastname@example.org, (218) 299-3743 or (800) 699-9020.
