Use BuckeyeLink? Enroll in BuckeyePass before Nov. 5!



BuckeyePass is a multifactor authentication service that provides a second layer of security to your Ohio State account.

In order to authenticate, it requires something you know (your password) and something you have (a mobile device or phone). Our BuckeyePass service is powered by Duo Security, a proven solution in multifactor authentication.

Your privacy and the security of your information are important to Ohio State. To help protect your information, the OCIO is implementing an extra layer of security on student systems.
Beginning November 5, you will be required to use BuckeyePass to access My Buckeye Link and other self-service sites including those used for registration and records, making payments and managing your student financial aid. BuckeyePass is not required for Carmen.

Just follow the enrollment instructions at BuckeyePass. If you have problems, the IT Service Desk is available 24/7 by phone at 614-688-4357 (HELP) or online.


While many Buckeye Link resources are included, Carmen Canvas is not affected by this change. Some areas that will be protected by BuckeyePass include:

• My Buckeye Link (Student Login [former Student Center])
• Faculty/Staff page
• Tuition and Fees
• Payments and Refunds
• Financial Aid
• Academics and Records
• Enrollment and Registration
