This KB Document provides an overview on the setup and use of Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication.

Microsoft MFA at FVTC

Fox Valley Technical College is deploying a new security feature called Microsoft Multi-Factor Authentication (Microsoft MFA) for all of our accounts. Multi-Factor Authentication adds a safe and secure two-step verification method to enhance the protection of your personal information and online accounts.

In addition to providing your online credentials (username and password), you will need to complete an additional two-step verification method to access certain Fox Valley Technical College online systems that may contain your secure personal, educational, or financial information. These two-step verification methods can be your choice of a range of authentication methods such as phone call, text message, mobile app notification, or one-time password (OTP).
