2 Step Authentication for Students
As part of the university’s security strategy, 2 Step Authentication will be required for all students when accessing Office 365, including email. To enable 2 Step Authentication on your KU account, begin by enrolling a device. The instructions below show how to enroll a smartphone with the Microsoft Authenticator App—the recommended method.
Make sure you have a reliable Internet connection, a desktop or laptop and your mobile phone on hand before you start the process.
On a desktop or laptop, click here and follow the instructions until you come to Kutztown's Single Sign On page.
When prompted, login with your KU user ID and password.
In the 'How should we contact you?' section, choose Mobile App from the drop down menu.
Select 'Receive notifications for verification'.
Select the Set Up button and follow the steps to download and set up the mobile app. Select 'Next'.
On the additional security verification screen, click Next. An approval push notification will be sent through the app to complete the process.
Enter your 10 digit mobile phone number as your additional security verification.
Click 'Done' to complete the registration process.
On the summary page, verify the security information. You can safely close this window.
