What is a Token/ID Credential?
The Verisign identity authentication process on the MOHELA school website requires a token. The Token/ID Credential is 12 alpha/numeric characters located on the back of your token and begins with AVT followed by 9 numeric characters (AVTxxxxxxxxx). The Token/ID Credential must be entered when you log on the MOHELA school website for the first time. You will not need to enter it on subsequent logins.
What is a security code?
The security code is 6 numeric characters displayed on the front of the token. When you depress the white button, the code is displayed and it changes every 30 seconds. The code must be entered every time you log into the MOHELA school website after you enter your password.
What is a Friendly Name?
The friendly name is not required when you log into the MOHELA school portal the first time. It is usually entered if you have multiple tokens and wish to identify them with a name rather than the Token/ID Credential ID.
