Microsoft Multifactor Authentication will be implemented for current students in a few weeks

WSU Information Technology Services (ITS) will roll out Microsoft’s Multifactor Authentication (MFA) for currently enrolled students within the next few weeks. MFA enhances security by requiring the use of a secondary device at login to verify your identity, which will ensure that others cannot access your account by obtaining your password.

WSU applications impacted by MFA will be email, Blackboard and all Office 365 products.

Currently enrolled students who are taking classes are required to register and use MFA. Existing WSU employees who are taking classes are not required to register for MFA. WSU staff and faculty already use Duo for multi-factor authentication.

Next steps:

Be on the lookout for more information from WSU ITS regarding when this functionality is available and how to set up your Multifactor Authentication. Learn more about MFA.
