6. Alumni Consent 

Being a CEU graduate has its advantages! But in order for graduates to use their alumni benefits and services, the university needs graduate permission to stay in touch. IMPORTANT: To continue using CEU email accounts, and to receive all the latest information on the alumni services and departmental updates, graduates are asked to fill in the "Future Communications" section of their graduation form.
