New Email Password Management Self-Service

The Office of Information Technology is pleased to announce the availability of a new Self-Service Password Management tool called “myPassword” to securely manage your email account password. After creating a myPassword profile, you can instantly reset or change your password in compliance with UML Password Requirements.

In addition to email/webmail, employees & students can already use their email address and password to access the Emergency Notification System, library resources, the wireless network, Echo360 lecture capture, and other business applications like HR Direct, e*mpac Finance System, and Summit reporting.

Plans are underway to soon use these same email credentials to access iSiS and the Online Housing Gateway. However, all iSiS passwords are currently still managed through the “Forgot YourPassword?” or “Change Your Password” links off the iSiS login screens (see image below).
