ParklandOne - Set Up Your Security Methods

"ParklandOne" refers to your digital credentials for the College. It encompasses your Parkland username, password, and multifactor authentication (MFA). ParklandOne account management is powered by a system called Okta. After updating your temporary ParklandOne password, you will be asked to set up your security methods.

    This is required to access Parkland systems that utilize multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA is an additional layer of security on top of your ParklandOne username and password and it is necessary to keep your account as safe as possible. 

    You will be shown a list of factor options. You must select Set up for at least one, but it is recommended that you set up more than one so you have a backup option for accessing Parkland systems.This does NOT mean that you will have to authenticate using all the methods each time you sign in. 

    To make an informed decision regarding which factor/s you want to set up, please see: ParklandOne - Compare the Multifactor Authentication (MFA) Options.

    For detailed instructions, you may select on the applicable link/s below:
