Summary of the Project

Campus email migrated into the Minnesota State Office 365 system March 2 - 3, 2019. Student and Employee will not be able to access email, OneDrive or other Office 365 services during the migration.

  • Student Email

    Student login usernames for email, OneDrive, and other Office 365 services changed starting the morning of March 4, 2019. Students now must add “@go.minnstate.edu” after their StarID for their login names, as follows:

    • Username = StarID@go.minnstate.edu
    • Password = your current StarID password

    If you added new files or edited existing files on your OneDrive space between 12pm Friday, February 22 and 6pm Sunday, March 3, those changes may have been lost during the migration. Students requiring assistance in recovering these files will need to contact the IT Help Desk.

    Students current as of March 1, 2019 will be assigned the student email address format of “firstname.lastname@my.nhcc.edu”.

    Student Checklist


    • Students current as of March 1, 2019 and all new students will be assigned a new email address in the format of “firstname.lastname@my.nhcc.edu”.

    • Students may access Office 365 by using links provided on the College website, through the NHCC College App, or by going directly to login.microsoftonline.com.
