Come spring break, St. Cloud State students and employees will need StarID to use nearly every information system, including email, e-Services, wireless network/Internet access and D2L.

For nearly every purpose, the four-letter, four-numeral StarID will replace HuskyNet ID and Tech ID login credentials with one ID, one password.

StarID will reduce complexity, enhance security and improve student mobility across Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) campuses. It is an important step toward the goal of a "single sign-on" for all online information services, according to Casey Gordon, director of technology support at St. Cloud State.

StarID is not new for employees. It is, for example, the username and password used to access Human Resources' eTimesheet tool.

StarID conversion is targeted for March 7-10. Systems will be unavailable for part or all of that time period. Downtime details will be published as the conversion period draws closer.  

St. Cloud State classes will not be in session March 10-14. Spring semester resumes March 17. View the Academic Calendar.

Every MnSCU campus will convert to StarID. Sister university Minnesota State University Mankato converted in December 2013.
