For Students

Georgia Tech considers the security and privacy of student and employee information to be of utmost importance. To keep our information safe, the Institute requires that all students, faculty, staff and student workers use two-factor authentication when accessing campus services and systems to strengthen the protection of student and employee data and maintain compliance with University System Information Security policy.

The goal is for the campus to be fully compliant by October 16, 2017.

To see an overview of two-factor authentication and its use at Georgia Tech, watch the video "Using Two-factor Authentication with Duo at Georgia Tech" on the Office of Information Technology's (OIT) YouTube page.

For students attending FASET: To pre-enroll in two-factor authentication before coming to campus, follow the instructions located in the document titled “Pre-Checklist for Enrolling in Two-factor Authentication Using Duo.” Once you’ve downloaded the Duo app, you will need to complete your enrollment at the FASET Expo, held in the Georgia Tech Bookstore. There will be enrollment tables set up on the second floor and staff will be available to answer any question and to complete your registration.

For new or existing students: You are encourage to enroll in two-factor authentication now but no later than the fall student break. Follow the instructions located in the document titled “Pre-Checklist for Enrolling in Two-factor Authentication Using Duo, then visit the Technology Support Center, Clough Commons, Room 215, located behind Starbucks or send a request to enroll to 2FA@oit.gatech.edu.

In the next few months, a new tool, Student Onboarding, will be launched to allow students to enroll each other. If you are already using two-factor authentication, you can use the Student Onboarding tool in Passport to enroll someone you know once you've verified them as a Georgia Tech student. We will notify all students when this tool is available.
