Question

How do I enable MFA for my account? 

Answer

Enabling MFA for your account is a requirement for all users when logging into our systems from off campus. This includes accessing mySierra, Canvas, DegreeWorks, Sierra Connect and more.  

 

You have two options for MFA: 

  1. Use your phone number to get a login code by text or call 

  1. Use an authenticator app to get a login code on your personal device (click here to jump to the instructions)

If you do not have a personal device to enable MFA, please contact studenttechsupport@sierracollege.edu.
