When you sign in to login.pugetsound.edu for the first time in a day, using a new browser, or using an incognito/private browser window, you will be prompted to verify the login attempt. This process is known as multi-factor authentication (MFA). Please expand the instructions below and follow the instructions to log in.

Choosing Which Factor to Use During Login

If you previously set up multiple factors, you can select which authentication factor to use. It will default to your most recently used factor. After you enter your credentials, click the down arrow next to the factor type to select another option. Note: If you only set up one factor, you will not see the arrow.
