• Multi-Factor: Beginning 8/1/17, before accessing HR Direct, you will need to enroll in DUO, our Multi-factor Authentication

    Multi-Factor Authentication coming to HR Direct!

    Beginning Tuesday, August 1, 2017, before accessing HR Direct, you will need to enroll a phone number in DUO, our Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) provider. This is a University-wide initiative to ensure that your personal information is protected. MFA requires you to provide something you know (your username and password), and something you have (such as a cell phone and/or landline).  When logging into HR Direct for the first time on or after August 1, 2017, you will be prompted to enroll with DUO. Once complete, you will then follow a simple two-step authentication process when accessing HR Direct. The link below will provide you all the information you need to register for MFA with DUO and prepare you for this important change.
