What is a StarID?
StarID is a unique Minnesota State system username that students and CE teachers can use to access Minnesota State and M State resources, including the online library database, D2L and WebWorks.
How Do I Activate a StarID?
Step 1: Go to the Minnesota State StarID website. Click on "Activate StarID" and then "Personal Email Address." Students must use the same personal email that they used when taking the Accuplacer exam. If students are not sure which email was used, contact email@example.com at least one week prior to activating StarIDs so a list of emails can be generated for the class. Concurrent instructors should activate their StarID using their school email.
Step 2: A verification code will be sent to the email address entered. The code is valid for only one hour and can be used only once.
Step 3: Copy and paste the code or enter it manually at the Minnesota State StarID website. Click on "Activate StarID" and "Verification Code." A StarID will be generated.
Step 4: Create a new password. Passwords must use at least three of the following: uppercase, lowercase, numbers, special characters.
