StarID

StarID is a username and password that will be used across the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities to access information technology systems and services. It is part of the Identity and Access Management Initiative (IAM). As systems are configured to use Star ID, the number of usernames and passwords students and employees will need to remember and use will be reduced. Ideally, all systems will be able to use Star ID so people will have a single username and password.

Currently, depending on the MnSCU systems you use/have access to, you may have multiple user logins and passwords. Star ID will eventually provide one credential to access IT services both across MnSCU and within institutions.

The purpose for the Identity and Access Management Initiative (IAM) is:

  • Protect identity and privacy of MnSCU users;
  • increase efficiency for faculty, staff and students by reducing time required to gain access to resources;
  • support learning programs and innovations by allowing increased and faster deployments of new web-based applications and services.

What does it do?
It gives approved users access to the following MnSCU services:  

  • E-time sheets
  • E-transcripts
  • Employee tuition waiver
  • Human Resources
  • Accounting
  • Student Direct Deposit
  • Veterans Administration

How is it different than a Tech ID?

  • Tech ID is your MnSCU employee number.
  • A Tech ID identifies you as an Anoka Tech employee on and off campus.

How is it different than the MN Employee ID number?

  • The MN Employee ID number identifies you in the State's employee systems.
  • Your Star ID is a secure user name and password to give you access to job appropriate MnSCU technology systems and services.
