ITS Expanding Use of StarID Beginning March 8

Beginning March 8, Information Technology Services will expand Bemidji State University’s use of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities StarID as the login credential for on-campus computers and for a variety of online services.

Expanded StarID rollout will happen March 8 for BSU faculty, staff and student workers and March 10 for all students. After these dates, you will be unable to access BSU computers, campus Wi-Fi and most BSU online services unless you know your StarID and password. You can look up your StarID or reset your password at:

The expanded use of StarID is part of an initiative to improve security for the university’s electronic services and to streamline login procedures across a variety of services.

Beginning March 8, your current login credentials will no longer function, and you must use StarID to log in. Some examples of services moving to StarID include:

  • BSU faculty computers
  • MyBSU
  • Office365 email and OneDrive
  • public computers on campus, including student lab computers
  • PaperCut printer authentication

In addition, you will now need StarID to log into the campus Wi-Fi network and into any BSU email accounts you have added to personal computers or mobile devices. After the StarID launch on March 8, your current Wi-Fi and email configurations will no longer function and you will be unable to access BSU’s wireless network or your email until your login credentials are updated.
