Ohio State is expanding its use of multi-factor authentication in order to increase the level of protection that prevents unauthorized individuals from accessing your information. Adding BuckeyePass to the login process for the Carmen learning management system not only reduces the risk of credential theft—it also helps address academic misconduct.
The IT Service Desk is available at the BuckeyeBar during business hours and by phone at 614-688-4357 (HELP) around the clock to help you solve technology problems. When it’s time to purchase new parking passes, we generally get numerous requests for password resets.
