What is the difference between StarID and Warrior/Tech ID?
StarID is a username that is used across all colleges and universities in the Minnesota State system. It is a combination of randomly generated letters and numbers.
You will use your StarID credentials to log into your student email, connect to campus wi-fi, access OneDrive and many other online applications.
A Warrior/Tech ID is an eight-digit number that is specific to Winona State University and is listed on your Warrior ID card. It’s used less frequently now that the campus has switched to primarily using StarID.
How do I reset my password?
Use the StarID Self Service to reset your StarID and password at any time yourself.
If your password has not expired, choose the option “Sign in to Profile” and sign in with your StarId and password. Choose "Edit" to change your password.
If your password is expired or unknown, choose the option “Reset my Password” and choose the option “I know my Tech ID” and enter your Winona State Warrior ID number and select Winona State from the list.
If you need assistance, contact the Technical Support Center at 507.457.5240.
