Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is now required on some systems!
Many systems based on the Columbia campus, such as my.sc.edu, Self-Service Carolina (SSC) and others began requiring MFA for access.
If you haven't already setup MFA for your accounts, you'll find information and instructions below. Columbia has also created a setup FAQ specifically for students.
Most systems managed by the USC-Columbia campus are protected by Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) using the DUO Security system.
The primary system protected by MFA is Self-Service Carolina (SSC). SSC is used for many of your basic administrative needs as a student: class registration, housing, financial aid, etc. You will need to complete MFA setup to have access to these areas.
