What is MFA? Multi Factor authentication is a method of confirming a users identity only after successfully authenticating multiple levels of security.
ITS has implemented multi-factor authentication (MFA) for off-campus access to several College applications that hold sensitive data. This ensures we continue to provide a safe and secure IT environment. The change will only affect faculty and staff, including student employees.
MFA will be required for off campus access to PeopleSoft applications and network file shares (N, G and I drives), and employee email using Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web Access (OWA).
The documentation to prepare your network account for this transition can be found here MFA_Instructions .
Off-Campus access instructions can be accessed here
