2Factor Migration Continues For University Applications

VCU is continuing its effort to protect our community from cyber threats that may jeopardize the safety and security of our information. VCU 2Factor authentication will be extended to major services such as email and VCU Portal starting August 1, 2017 and Blackboard on August 15th, 2017. This upcoming change will provide faculty and staff members with additional protection for their VCU accounts and will provide the students with the option to enroll in additional security for their accounts.
