Okta - How do I Log In?

Kean University has partnered with Okta, a world leader in identity and access management (IAM), to provide a seamless and secure login experience to Kean resources and services.

Benefits of using Okta Single Sign-On (SSO) include: 

  • Provides a secure set of credentials that allow for access to multiple applications, saving you valuable time when repeatedly accessing the same services. 
  • Provides additional security features and functionality like multi-factor authentication methods, and secure mobile device verifications.
  • And much, much more! 

How do I enroll? 

Enrolling your device in Okta only takes a few steps. Visit https://sso.kean.edu to begin the enrollment process, we suggest using a device other than your mobile phone as you will need to download the Okta Verify / Google Authenticator app and scan a QR code during this process. You'll be greeted with a sign-in page and will need to enter your Kean username (Kean Google Email ID) and password.

If you have any issues with the sign-up process, please contact the OCIS Help Desk at 908-737-6000.
