Two-factor authentication with Duo is required for all incoming AppState students.   New students will be introduced to two-factor authentication during Orientation and will be automatically enrolled at the end of the Orientation session. Once enrolled, students will be required to complete enrollment by adding an authentication device before logging in to University services.   We recommend registering a mobile phone number with Duo and one additional device as a backup.  Instruction on how to complete DUO enrollment can be found below.
