The college has engaged in a coordinated effort to further strengthen system and network access safeguards. Columbia College is partnering with DUO Security to implement Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on various software systems as well as on college hardware. Multi-Factor Authentication is an additional layer of security on top of user IDs and passwords, Single Sign-On, or VPN.
As a result, when you enter your username and password into one of these systems, Duo will send a message to your smart device prompting a response to gain access.
Beginning Monday, May 17, 2021, Duo will be enabled for all students when accessing college systems.
