Student MFA Rollout

MFA will be mandatory for all from the 1st of September 2022

There are three methods of MFA at JCU:

  • ForgeRock Authenticator - push notification on a mobile device
  • Generic Authenticator (e.g., Google authenticator) - one-time-passwords generated on your app
  • YubiKey (Security hardware device) - suitable if you don't have a phone

You are prompted to register your device for MFA as part of the login process, which will become mandatory for all students commencing 1st August  2022.  During the staggered transition period, your mandatory MFA date may be earlier than this, depending on which study periods your upcoming enrolled subjects are in.

Please read the MFA information page to find out more.
