I can not connect to Scholars Choice. It says "Your bank uses an authentication method that prevents Mint from adding your account." Can this be fixed?

Unfortunately it seems that this financial institution is now using a dynamic passcode for logins, usually meaning that it send you a password to your phone or email each time you want to login.  Unfortunately we have no way to support this sort of multi-factor authentication, as we have no way to retrieve those messages.  My only suggestions at this point would be to first try contacting the financial institution and see if they have any options to bypass or choose not to use this form of authentication.  Beyond that, I would recommend reporting the issue to our support team for further investigation, as sometimes our data connectivity team can work with the bank to figure out an alternate access method for us:  https://www.mint.com/help/#more-help

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
