Is your personal email address up to date?

Inver Hills, including the StarID system, will send all email communications to your personal email address. It is extremely important that the personal email address in your E-services record is up to date and working.

To verify and update your email address:

  1. Log in to your E-Services account.
  2. Click on Account Management, then Demographic Info.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find your email address on record.
  4. To update your email address, enter the new address and click Submit.
Without an accurate e-mail address you will not be able to use some of the StarID self-service tools and Inver Hills faculty and staff will be unable to send you important messages.

What is StarID?

The StarID format consists of two letters followed by four numbers, followed by two letters, such as ab1234cd. StarID is never duplicated and never re-assigned. This means that once issued, you can use the same StarID at every participating MnSCU institution.
