Our technology services and resources are a vital part of the UNK commitment to academic excellence.


On February 17th UNK will launch Federated authentication. If you are a current Duo user for two factor authentication (2FA) into systems such as Firefly or Box, the student information system is  now an additional system that is protected by Duo 2FA, so you will be prompted by DUO 2FA upon logging into MyBLUE.  Additional federation changes are shown and explained below.

New login page, new login option will be available for MyBLUE.

New MyBLUE Login Page

Used either NUID or UNK Credentials to login

These changes are the first step to “Single Sign On” (SSO) capability.  SSO will allow users – within the same browser -- to log in once using your NUID/password to utilize MyBLUE, TrueYou and Firefly.  SSO using your UNK Username (aka EASI credentials) is available for MyBLUE, TrueYou, Box, Qualtrics, Cisco Jabber and a few others.  SSO for Canvas will be coming at a later time.

By providing the ability to use either login credential, UNK hopes to offer an easier and more streamlined login experience.

If you have questions contact the UNK Helpdesk at 308-865-8363.
