New Students

Congratulations on being accepted to the School of Graduate Studies at SCSU!

Now that you have been accepted you may be asking what is next. This site will provide you with the information necessary to reach your goals.

Have you activated your 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 for your student email, D2L, HuskyNet, and everywhere that StarID is accepted. It is unique across the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, so you can use it at more than one school.

Make sure you have your SCSU Student ID number handy before you begin the activation process. The Student ID is located on your acceptance letter.

Activate your STAR ID now.
