Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is required for all Mason employees when accessing websites/applications protected by Mason's Central Authentication Service (CAS) (i.e., Libraries, Travel System, etc.), including Patriot Web and Banner-related applications.

CAS is a single sign-on service used by a variety of Mason websites/applications to authenticate individuals. Its purpose is to permit users to access multiple sites while providing their credentials (NetID and Patriot Pass Password) only once.

At this time, students (unless employed by the university) may enroll in 2FA but are not required.

CAS LOGIN (Employees)

If you are enrolled in 2FA, visit Using 2FA with Web Applications for instructions on how to log in to CAS with 2FA and turn on the "Remember Me for 7 days' function in Duo.

If you are not enrolled in 2FA, you will not be able to access any CAS-enabled websites/applications. If you attempt to log in with your NetID and Patriot Pass password, your access will be denied. You must enroll in 2FA immediately in order to access these systems.
