Internet Explorer 11 Users:
There is a known issue with IE 11 and the StarID activation page. Please use an earlier version of Internet Explorer or another browser to activate your StarID.

On Thursday, December 19, 2013, your current CAMPUS username will change to your StarID. Following the conversion, you will use your StarID to log in to all services provided by Information and Technology Services. These include:

  • MavNET Wireless Network
  • MavMAIL
  • MavDISK
  • Desire2Learn (D2L)
  • Classroom, public lab, and kiosk computers

You can continue to use your TechID or you may use your StarID to log in to E-Services.

What You Need To Do

  1. Before December 19, activate your StarID.
  2. Click on Activate StarID and follow the instructions on the page. Set or change your StarID password to one you have NEVER used before.
    If you have a social security number, click on TechID (StudentID) and follow the instructions.
    If you do not have a social security number, click on Verification Code and follow the instructions.
  3. Change your CAMPUS login password (my.mnsu.edu/account) to match your new StarID password. This will make the transition smoother for you.

What You Can Expect After the Conversion

Some settings on mobile devices (phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) will likely need to be reconfigured. These include MavNET Wireless, ResNet (residence communities), your email client (if you use one), MavPRINT, and others.

Use the StarID Configuration Wizard

This wizard will walk you through a series of questions about your configurations to get you to the training and support documentation you need for your personal configuration.
