Multifactor Authentication (MFA)

Multifactor Authentication (MFA), also know as two-step verification, is required to access systems on our UofSC network.  MFA requires students, faculty, and staff to take an extra step each time they login to university systems.  

Beginning June 5, the university will use DUO Security for MFA. You probably have used some form of MFA with your financial institution or credit card company. As with many financial institutions, you will be required to use something you know (password) with something you have – text message, call to landline, or token. To prepare for this new requirement, please complete the enrollment process now. Instructions and frequently asked questions can be found here
