Attention All Students: Register for BuckeyePass

BuckeyePass is a multi-factor 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).

Starting in November 2017 all students will need to use two-factor authentication to access My Buckeye Link to register for courses and pay University fees. To learn about BuckeyePass and the steps to register please visit buckeyepass.osu.edu
