Okta for Education

Okta helps educational institutions around the world run more efficiently and improve the student and staff experience

Modern identity solutions for education institutions

The Okta Identity Platform provides easy, centralized, and secure identity and access management for all key campus user groups: students, staff, partners, parents, applicants, and alumni.

Simplify campus complexity

With Okta Universal Directory, institutions can connect into a variety of directory sources—AD, LDAP, Ellucian, Peoplesoft, Workday—and use Okta as the hub for connecting users with the resources they need.

Streamlined access for students and staff

With Single Sign-On, admins gain a single pane of glass to manage access across this complex user base, and can use group rules to ensure that the right people get access to the right resources. Okta also integrates with Shibboleth and Incommon to provide access to core education services.

Automate on/offboarding for all campus users

Automate access, from applicant to alumnus. Take advantage of Okta groups to support enhanced provisioning. Schools can use Workday or traditional directories like AD or LDAP as their source, or use Okta’s CSV-as-a-source to connect into systems such as Ellucian Banner, Colleague, and Peoplesoft Campus.

Enhance campus cybersecurity

Okta’s Adaptive MFA helps mitigate phishing attacks, which education is particularly vulnerable to, while also providing a variety of factor and even passwordless options to simplify the experience for end users such as students.
