I am having a problem logging in to MyMadison - I get the error message "Access Denied. The username you have entered cannot authenticate with Duo Security"

Depending upon your role at JMU (graduated, student and employee), this message has different meanings:

  • Graduated: Never enrolled in Duo (typically applies to graduates or those who may have had an eID at JMU in the past prior to the implementation of two-factor authentication with Duo)
  • Student/Employee: Have not activated your eID

If you continue to receive the "Access Denied" message, contact the IT Help Desk at (540) 568-3555 or email helpdesk@jmu.edu
