Changing or Resetting Your Xavier Password

Your Xavier account password can be changed by logging into the Password Manager website. When changing your password, keep the following in mind:

Before changing your password

  • Passwords must be a minimum of 12 characters. Longer passwords are harder to guess.
  • Do not use easily-guessed words and patterns (eg, "Xavier", "123", years, seasons, first/last/family names).
  • Include at least one uppercase letter and one number.
  • Stronger passwords needn’t be hard to remember. Pick a phrase, a song title or your favorite verse and include required elements (uppercase, numbers) as needed.
  • Allowed special characters are: ! % * + - / : ?_ ' ;
  • Do not reuse passwords for other services with your Xavier password, or vice-versa.

After changing your password

  • Update your password on any mobile devices you own, to prevent lockouts.
  • Never post your password in plain sight, or enter it while in a crowded public place.
  • Never email your password to anyone, ever.
  • Never submit your credentials on a website unless it is a secure site.

To proceed to the Password Manager, go to https://password.xavier.edu.
