What is a StarID?

The StarID is a username with the goal of replacing your many login IDs with one ID, one password, everywhere. Once you activate it, you can use your StarID and password anywhere that accepts StarID. It is unique across the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, so you can use it at more than one school. Change your password in one place — starid.minnstate.edu — and it will change everywhere.

Private/Confidential Information Collection Notification

PLEASE NOTE: The college/university is asking you to provide information that includes private and/or confidential information under state and federal law. The college/university is asking for this information in order to process your application. You agree to provide the college/university with your data, and the college/university agrees to process your application.

The college/university will use your data for the following purposes: 1) to process your application; 2) to follow up on your progress completing the application; 3) for internal business purposes as allowed by law; and not for any other purpose unless required by law or college/university policy. The college/university may retain your data in accordance with an applicable records retention obligation or other legal obligation, or at your request.

You have the right to ask for corrections to your data as set forth in Minnesota Statutes § 13.04 Subd. 3. You have the right to avail yourself of the dispute procedures set forth in Minnesota Statutes § 13.08 concerning your data. If you have questions about access to your data, the college/university can refer you to its Data Practice Compliance Official.

If you are a resident of the European Union, you may have additional rights as set forth in Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation. College/university will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate those rights to the extent those rights do not conflict with the college/university’s obligations under state and federal law.

You are not legally required to provide the information the college/university is requesting; however, the college/university may not be able to effectively process your application if you do not provide sufficient information. With some exceptions, unless you consent to further release of private information, access to this information will be limited to school officials, including faculty who have legitimate educational interests in the information. Under certain circumstances, federal and state laws authorize release of private information without your consent:

  • to other schools in which you seek or intend to enroll, or are enrolled;
  • to federal, state or local officials for purposes of program compliance, audit or evaluation;
  • as appropriate in connection with your application for, or receipt of, financial aid;
  • to your parents, if your parents claim you as a dependent student for tax purposes;
  • if the information is sought with a subpoena, court order, or otherwise permitted by other state or federal law, and
  • to an organization engaged in educational research or an accrediting agency.

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities abide by the provisions of Title IX and other federal and state laws forbidding discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin or handicap and all other state and federal laws regarding equal opportunity. This document can be made available in alternate formats, such as large print, upon request by contacting the college/university.

The collection of demographic data is strictly voluntary and utilized only for the purpose of evaluating student recruitment and retention policies. If you choose to provide demographic data to the college/university, you are explicitly consenting to the college/university’s collection, storage, and processing of that data for the purpose of evaluating student recruitment and retention policies.
