What is a StarID?

The StarID is a username with the goal of replacing many login IDs with one ID, one password, everywhere. Once you activate it, you can use your StarID and password anywhere that accepts StarID. It is unique across the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, so you can use it at more than one school. Change your password in one place — starid.mnscu.edu — and it will change everywhere.

Who has a StarID?

All students, faculty, and staff of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system have StarIDs and can activate theirs now. Colleges and universities are introducing students to StarID as they convert systems to use it.

What is a StarID used for?

Each college and university can choose to use StarID for different IT systems. The most common of these include:

Each school determines when and whether to convert their systems to use StarID. Check with Information Technology Services at your college or university to learn which of their IT systems have been configured to use StarID.

A number of systemwide IT services accept StarID login wherever the service is used. Here are a few of these services:
