Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Now Required

Effective June 2023, your NC 529 Account now requires two-factor authentication (2FA) in order to log in. 2FA is an enhanced security measure that requires you to use two different authentication methods, such as a password and a one-time security code, to access your Account. With 2FA, even if someone else has your password, they will not be able to access your Account without the one-time security code.

If you would like to change your 2FA method, you can use this Quick Reference Guide.
