Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Setup

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is now mandatory. MFA requires you to provide two or more verification methods (such as a password) to access critical tools using your myNOVA (VCCS) account (i.e., Canvas, SIS, and Zoom).

There are two common methods for MFA using your mobile device: Push Notification and Text Notification. 
​​​​​​​

Use the RapidIdentity mobile app for authentication.
