Multi-Factor Authentication Set Up

Mid Michigan College has added Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to better secure your Laker Login. MFA was enabled for all users on May 13, 2024.

MFA adds a layer of security when you sign in by requiring you to log in with a password and an additional security measure via a security code delivered to a mobile device via text message or call, or by using an authenticator app. This step prevents up to 98 percent of phishing attacks.

Use the steps below to set up MFA and add or update your mobile number in Self-Service.
