Duo: Request Access for Enterprise Applications that Require Duo Two Factor Authentication

Managers or supervisors with employees who have a business need to access databases and enterprise-level applications that use Duo must request access to those services (via an Access Request Form, or ARF).  When a faculty, staff, or student employee is granted access to a service that requires Duo two-factor authentication, they will be granted access to Duo.

As of November 2019, Duo Security is required at the UMN Sign-in page (Shibboleth) for all current students, faculty, staff, sponsored and POI accounts. Anyone with a UMN account may choose to require Duo at Sign in for their accounts. No ARF is required for Duo at Sign-in.

Please note: Opting out of Duo is not possible once Duo has been associated with your account.

See Duo Security.
