How to Create a Friend Account

You must have an e-mail address that does not end in "umich.edu" in order to set up a Friend account.

  1. Navigate to the Request a Friend Account Web page: https://friend.weblogin.umich.edu/friend/

  2. In the Your e-mail address box, enter your full e-mail address (your e-mail address will be your login ID), and then click Request.

  4. The U-M Friend Account Request e-mail message sent to you contains a link. Click the Create Friend Account link in the message to go to a Web page where you continue to create your Friend account. (Depending on which e-mail program you use, the message may be formatted differently.)

    IF YOU DON'T RECEIVE THE MESSAGE: Most people who report not receiving the message find that it has been caught by their spam filter. If your e-mail program files suspected spam messages in a spam or junk folder, please check that folder in case the message was put there. The message will be from friend-noreply@umich.edu. If you cannot find the message, it may have been caught by a server's spam filter before it could reach your computer. Contact your e-mail service provider for more help.

  5. In the Your e-mail address box, type your full e-mail address.

    Select a password and, in the Password box, type the selected password.

    In the Re-enter password box, retype the password to confirm your selection.

    Click Set Password.

  7. An e-mail message confirms the creation of your Friend account and provides you with information about it. We recommend that you save this message for reference.
