ITS has launched an enhanced online authentication service called Okta. Okta makes managing your Colby account simpler, and accessing many online services used by Colby easier and more secure.

Preparing for this change – what you need to do now

In order to access services when they are moved to Okta, you need to activate and configure your Okta account by following two simple steps:

  1. Start here to authenticate your account (enter your Colby username and password)
  2. Choose an account image and secret question for the Okta service – these are used for enhanced security and verification purposes.
  3. That’s it – you’re all set up on the new system!

What comes next?

On March 9, 2020 Colby’s Google Suite (also known as ‘Gsuite’ or ‘Google Apps’) domain will be authenticated by the Okta identity portal.  The Google Suite includes Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive and other Google apps such as Google Docs and Google Sheets.  More information can be found here:
