Student MFA is now on Office 365

Multi-factor authentication has been added to the Office 365 environment (Outlook, OneDrive, etc.) for students currently enrolled at UWM. 

Any eligible student who has yet to enroll in MFA will be prompted to sign-up when they next log into Office 365. Please note: MFA will only be required for student login to Office 365. It will not be required for student access to other campus systems such as PAWS or Canvas.
