Between October 29 and November 12, 2018, the Payroll and Human Resources (PHR) system will begin using the University of Maryland's Central Authentication Service (CAS), which requires multi-factor authentication. MFA will be required in order to use PHR to access earning statements, complete timesheets, and perform all other PHR tasks. Please keep in mind that beginning November 12, you will need to be enrolled in MFA to access ALL areas of PHR.

All UMD and University System of Maryland community members must use multi-factor authentication to log into all university resources that use CAS. Some major systems that use CAS are ELMS-Canvas, ELMS-Canvas, Testudo, Terrapin Express, Box, and library services.

If you have not enrolled, you can enroll yourself now and learn more about the process.

If you need help enrolling a device or enabling multi-factor authentication, contact the IT Service Desk at 301.405.1500 or
