Enrolling in Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for Enhanced Security

 

Multi-Factor Authentication or MFA is a process in which requires additional logins in order to view documents and access systems in a more secure setting. This can be used for viewing documents you may need for use from the College, such as tax forms, or programs used by the College, such as email.

This article will show you how to go through the steps to keep sensitive or private information safe. By going through multi-factor authentication you verify that "you're you" before you access this type of information.

You can enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication in one of two ways:

1. Downloading the Microsoft Authenticator App

2. Text Message/Phone Authentication

 

Note: You will need to have access to a computer and your mobile device to complete these steps.

If you have previously set up Multi-Factor Authentication using Authenticator and now have a new device, please contact the IT Help Desk to update the registration.
