Q)  I’ve heard there are 2 formats to enter my StarID on campus depending on what I’m doing.  Which one should I use?

A)  Yes.  There are 2 ways to enter your StarID depending on the service you are trying to access.  It’s important to note that they both reference one StarID account, and the password is the same for both.  The 2 choices are:

  • StarID only (EX: xy4321ab) or
  • “StarID@live.bemidjistate.edu” or “StarID@live.ntcmn.edu” (EX: xy4321ab@live.bemidjistate.edu).
