Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a two-factor authentication solution that helps boost security by verifying user identity, establishing device trust, and providing a secure connection to networks and applications. Starting July 1, 2024, all students will be required to use Duo MFA to access their college email accounts. This will be implemented to increase our security posture and meet regulatory and insurance coverage requirements.

Students and team members will have the same options for using Duo authentication to protect their accounts. You can download the Duo Mobile app, found in the smartphone’s app store. Students who have a cell phone without smartphone capabilities will still be able to receive authentication requests via call or text message (messaging rates may apply). If a student does not have either of the above options, they may reach out to the Helpdesk directly for alternative methods to authenticate using Duo.

Students may voluntarily enroll in Duo starting June 17, 2024. Enrollment is required after July 1, 2024. More information about Duo Multi-Factor Authentication is available here.

Wi-Fi Access

The college campus is equipped with Wi-Fi, which you can use to connect your devices to the internet. To connect, simply select the network LC-Wireless, and your device will redirect you to a site to enter your L&C credentials to join the network.
