StarID Passwords

The StarID is a username that replaces many login IDs with one ID and one password.  Change your password in one place — starid.minnstate.edu — and it will change everywhere.

  2. Select the “StarID Self Service” link, then select “Reset Password”
  3. Select one of the options on the next page (Tech ID, Email Address…)
  4. Enter the requested information and set your password.

If you know your password:

  1. Visit the web site “starid.minnstate.edu”
  2. Select the “StarID Self Service” link, then select “Manage Profile”
  3. Login to the StarID Self Service Login page with your current StarID password
  4. Enter your old password and new password into the text boxes.
  5. Select the “Apply” button in the “Change Password” section.

How do I know when my StarID password will expire?

The StarID system sends email to your preferred email address 21 days, 7 days, and 1 day before your password expires.

My password has expired.

You may reset your password by following the “Reset Password” link at StarID Self Service.

What are the password requirements?

The password complexity requirement associated with the StarID complies with the Minnesota State password security guideline. Passwords must meet or exceed these criteria:

  • Changed at least every 180 days.
  • Between 8 and 128 characters long.
  • Use at least 3 of these types of characters: uppercase, lowercase, numbers, special characters.
  • May not have been used before.
  • May not contain your first name or last name if they are longer than 2 characters.

Special characters include characters like these: !@#$%^&*()_+=-`{}[]|\:”;'<>,.?/
