Need to print your tax forms? Tax form printing will be available at the Service Desk in Milne Computer Center, room 201 until midnight on April 16 & 17. Please call (541-737-8787) or come to Milne 201 for help.

What's going on?

Oregon State University has taken steps to secure your confidential financial information on the web. This includes direct deposit information, W-2s and other forms containing Social Security numbers.

Why are we doing this?

In recent months, a number of higher education institutions have been targeted by thieves who use stolen credentials to divert direct deposits to fraudulent accounts. There are also reports of attempts to steal personal information from tax forms. OSU has seen similar attempts at these types of criminal activities. This is a necessary step to secure direct deposit and tax form information.

How does this affect me?

After Tuesday, March 27, at 6:00PM, if you need to make a change to your direct deposit, or if you need access to certain tax forms (W-2 and 1098T), you will have three options:

A. Fill out a paper request form and either mail or take it to the Payroll Office (Kerr Admin 100).

B. Use one of the special-access kiosks on the Corvallis and Cascades campuses. (Available during building hours.)

  • Kerr:  main floor, just outside the Registrar’s Office
  • Milne 201 (Client Services intake room)
  • Snell – HSBC
  • Student Experience Center – AABC Office
  • OSU Cascades - Tykeson

C. Sign-up for Duo two-step login.*

How do I enable two-step login?

Use the button below to enable two-step login for your OSU account.

* Please note that when you enable two-step login for your account, it will be required whenever you login using your OSU credentials via SSO. Students, be aware that enabling two-step login may impact your ability to take computer-based tests. Speak with the Service Desk for more information. Canvas currently does not require two-step login.

Enable Two-step Login

Once you have enabled two-step login for your account, go back to MyOSU to continue.

I don't want to use Duo, what do I do?

If you are unable to use Duo, you can still use a paper form or use a secure kiosk as noted in the options above.

I still have questions.

Go to or contact the IS Service Desk for questions or concerns regarding Duo two-step login.
