Creating Your Manhattanville Password

Manhattanville's self-service password utility gives you a single password for your Office 365 Email account, WebAdvisor, and possibly other applications in the future.

Before you can use your password, you must sign in with a temporary password, change it to a permanent one, and establish your profile with two security questions.

You can then change your password at any time (something you should do periodically as a security measure). If you forget your password, you can reset it by answering the questions in your profile.

To determine your user name and temporary password:

  • Your user name is your last name followed by your first initial.
    • All the letters in your user name are lower case.
    • Omit non-alphabetic characters such as apostrophes, hyphens or spaces.
    • If another user already has your name and initial, your user name will have a number at the end. To obtain your user name, check your personal email account for messages from Manhattanville's Registrar, or call the Help Desk at (914) 323-7230.
    Examples:
    • If your name is Andrew Smith, your user name is "smitha".
    • If "smitha" is already taken, check your personal email messages or contact the Help desk at (914) 323-7230 for your username.
    • If your name is Seamus O'Brian, your user name is "obrians".
  • Your temporary password is a single word (no spaces) consisting of:
    • Your first initial in upper case
    • Your last initial in lower case
    • Your seven-digit Manhattanville ID number, including any leading zeros.
    Example:
    • If Andrew Smith's Manhattanville ID is 0012345, the temporary password is "As0012345".

To create or update your password and profile:

  1. Use your web browser to visit the Self Service Password utility at https://selfservice.mville.edu.
  2. Enter your user name and your password in the fields provided.
  3. From the dropdown list, select your domain:
    • If you are a student, select STUDENT.
    • If you are a Manhattanville employee: (faculty, staff, administration), select ACADEM.
  4. Click the Login button.
  5. Follow the instructions to change your password and complete your profile.

Be sure to write down your password and keep it in a safe place.
