Azure Active Directory Connect (AAD Connect) and Azure Directory Federated Services (ADFS)

The most efficient path to Moving to Microsoft Education from on-Premise Active Directory is using AAD Connect with Password Sync and the Express Configuration. If you need to manage password authentication requests from your own on premise Active Directory, use the Passthrough Authentication Option with AAD Connect. Finally, If you need on-premise managed Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS) will be required.
