On Wednesday, Jan. 20, if you haven’t created a new passphrase and set up DUO, you will be unable to access CSUSM systems and will have to contact the IITS Help Desk for assistance.
If you have not yet enrolled in DUO, you will need to complete these steps prior to transitioning to a passphrase.
Visit our DUO guide for instructions on how to enroll in DUO.
Creating a Passphrase and Recovery Option
Setting up your passphrase is easy. The two-step process takes about 5 minutes.
As of 9:15 on Jan. 20th, passphrases and DUO (MFA) are enforced for all students, staff, and faculty and across all CSUSM systems.
If you require assistance with your passphrase or with Duo, please contact the IITS Help Desk..
