III. Getting Started
How do I log in?
Logging In:
Log in using your universal password. If you have forgotten your password or do not know your username, please visit our Create or Reset Password page.

Logging Out:
Although the Profile Manager will automatically time out after 30 minutes of inactivity, you should always log out after editing your profile. Click on the red "Log Out" button located at the top of the navigation bar at the left. This will prevent anyone from making unauthorized changes to your profile.


Which categories and fields must I fill in?
Required Fields:
While there are no required fields, it is to your advantage to enter as much information from your curriculum vitae as possible. If a category or field does not apply to you, simply leave it blank and it will not appear when your profile is displayed.


How do I save what I have entered?
"Save and Review" and "Save and Continue"
Hit "Save and Review" or "Save and Continue" on each page after you have entered and/or edited data. Hitting "Save and Review" or "Save and Continue" automatically updates the changes or edits to your profile on the Adelphi website.

To avoid losing data, please remember to first click the "Save and Review" or "Save and Continue" button before you:

  • select a different category from the left navigation
  • continue to the next page
  • review your profile
Always be sure to verify all information.


What is the difference between "Save and Review" and "Save and Continue"?
"Save and Review"
Clicking the "Save and Preview" button at the bottom of each page will save your data and automatically take you to a Review of your profile page to show you the way it will be displayed on the Adelphi Web site. After Reviewing, you will be able to return to specific editor windows to adjust content by clicking the red “Back to Edit Mode Link” in the left navigation.

"Save and Continue"
Clicking the "Save and Continue" button at the bottom of each page will save the information you have entered and automatically bring you to the next category page.


What is the difference between the "Save and Review" button and the "Review My Profile" link?
If you have entered data on a page, you must hit "Save and Review" to review your profile or your data will be lost. Clicking "Review My Profile"—the last link in the left navigation bar—gives you the ability to Review your profile at any time, but will not save your data before taking you to the Review page.


How can I add links to other websites from my Profile?
Certain categories, such as Recent Refereed Articles, will include a specific form field for a url. You can also paste links beginning with http:// into the body of other sections, such as the Personal Statement, for example, and they will automatically display as working hyperlinks within your profile.
