Two-factor authentication (2FA) requires a secondary confirmation of your identity after the initial NetID login using a physical device (app, text message or phone call).

If your office telephone is incorrect, please contact UTS@oakland.edu to get your office telephone number updated.

A second device is required if you access Banner via your desktop computer on the VPN.
