Re:  ACORN to Enforce UTORMFA Authentication August 9


Hi everyone,

In an effort to enhance security, starting August 9 students who have already signed up for UTORMFA will be prompted to use multi-factor authentication when logging in to ACORN along with their UTORid.

New students who have not enrolled in UTORMFA within the 14-day period after setting up their UTORid will be blocked from all U of T applications, including ACORN, until they complete their enrolment.

Alumni and new students who have not yet converted their JOINid to UTORid can continue to access ACORN using their JOINid without UTORMFA authentication.

Please update any divisional materials that reference the ACORN login process.

Questions? View U of T’s UTORMA Policy and FAQs (see the “Students” section at the bottom of the page).

If you have other questions, please contact Rodney Branch, Manager of Client Services and Process Integration, at

Thank you for your support in making this improvement.
