MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication)

Multi-Factor Authentication

It's easy - just sign in, verify, and get access!

You have the ability to enable multi-factor authentication on your Microsoft Office 365 account for extra security to help protect your information and keep the College safe.

Get Started

  1. Step 1: Enable MFA 
    You can skip this step if you get the message "More information required" when you try to log into Office 365 / email. Read instructions or watch a short video to get started.
  2. Step 2: Configure MFA 
    Everyone must configure MFA, whether they self-enabled or were automatically enabled. Read instructions or watch a short video to get set up.
