Duo Multi-Factor Authentication Rolling Out to Remaining Students

Over the past several years, UNI has been rolling out Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to protect the CatID accounts of its students, faculty, and staff as well as to protect important University data. To date, all University employees have been enrolled in Duo, including student employees. Students who have a balance remaining on their student financial aid for the semester and have elected to receive that balance via direct deposit into their bank accounts have also already enrolled in Duo MFA.

Starting on Tuesday, April 19th, 2022, Information Technology (IT) will provision students not using Duo into the Duo MFA system. This means the next time on or after April 19th one of these students logs into their UNI Google account or the Student Information System, they will need to complete the enrollment process in Duo MFA. This process is simple and typically takes only a few minutes.

You are able to enroll yourself before April 19, however! To do so, simply visit https://mfa.uni.edu/enroll and sign in with your CatID credentials.

You can follow the instructions at the following IT knowledge article that will also walk you through the process:
