My StarID and password used to work and now it doesn't. What should I do?
Which identifier should I use to activate my StarID or reset the password?
Students can use one of three identifiers to either activate their StarID or change their password:
- TechID and SSN: If you know your TechID and the University has your Social Security Number (SSN) in your student record, this is a good way to activate your StarID. Current students can find their TechID on their MavCARD.

- Library Card Barcode and SSN: If you have a MavCARD and the University has your SSN in your student record, you can use the barcode number listed on your MavCARD.
- Personal Email Address: Enter the email address you provided the University initially or if you are a current student you can also enter your email address ending in mnsu.edu. If the email address you enter is on file, you will be sent a verification code to that email address.
