StarID: Activation and Password Change


  • The StarID is a username specific to each student, faculty and staff member of Minnesota State, which includes Hennepin Technical College.
  • Activate or change your password in one place — — and it changes everywhere.
  • The StarID is two letters, four numbers, and two letters, e.g. "ab1234cd."
  • Faculty, staff and students are all assigned a Minnesota State StarID.


  • Instead of a separate log in at each college or university, you can use the same StarID across Minnesota State.
  • Allows students to log into the portal, email, eServices and more.
  • Allows faculty to log into the portal, ISRS and more.
  • Update one password in one place.


  • For more information, see StarID Help and FAQ.
  • Best number for contacting Minnesota State IT Service Desk: (877) 466-6728
