Multi-Factor Authentication - Set Up

Below are instructions on how to set up Multi-factor Authentication for your NDSU services.

Set Up Multi-factor Authentication for University System Services 

You must set up a secondary device (e.g., mobile phone, tablet, landline) before using MFA to access protected systems. 

  1. Open a web browser and go to the NDSU Account Managementsystem, and then log in with your NDSU electronic ID and password. 
    • Note: For easier enrollment, open the setup page using a computer and have your secondary device nearby. 
  2. Click Multi-Factor Authentication in left menu. 
  3. Click Enroll in Duo. 
  4. Click the Start Setup button and follow the prompts to add a mobile phone (recommended), tablet (e.g., iPad, Nexus 7), or landline. 
    • Note: For in depth step-by-step instructions, please see the Duo enrollment guide
    • Note: If using a mobile phone or tablet, you may be prompted to install the Duo Mobile app. 
  5. Once completed, you will have access to NDUS systems protected by Multi-Factor Authentication. 
  6. After you set up the first device, we recommend setting up an additional second-factor device to ensure you are able to log in even if you do not have access to your primary device. 
Once you have completed the setup process for the University System services, you will return to the main page and have the option to set up MFA for NDSU services.
