About Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides an additional layer of security for your UARK account that makes it more difficult for unauthorized users to access services, applications, and sensitive data.

How It Works

Multi-factor combines something you know (UARK email and password) with something you have (a trusted device, like a phone).

  1. Log into a UARK online service like Outlook, Blackboard Learn or UAConnect.
  2. Receive a notification on your smartphone.
  3. Verify access to your UARK account.

ADA Accessibility

Assistance is available for users needing an accommodation due to a disability. 

Faculty/Staff: Contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Compliance at titlevii@uark.edu or 479-575-4019.

Students: Contact the Center for Educational Access at ada@uark.edu or 479-575-3104.


Multi-factor authentication is required for accessing all UARK accounts starting at the time the account is created.  This requirement is designed to minimize the potential security exposure to University of Arkansas from damages which may result from unauthorized use of university resources.
