Difference Between WSU Username/Password, Access Codes and PIN

What is the difference between WSU username, password and PIN, and an access code?


Your username is your StarID (e.g. ab1234cd); your StarID password.  Answers to most StarID questions (such as "What is my StarID") can be found at: starid.minnstate.edu

Username and password are the same for the following accounts:
      -Warrior Network
      -Student eServices
      -D2L Brightspace

Before registration, you will be given an access code to sign up for classes. You need as evidence you met with your advisor. You will be asked to enter it before registration; this is a one-time use code. Every semester at WSU you will receive a new code from your advisor. Once you have entered this code, you will not have to enter it again during the same semester.  You will, however, be queued to enter the password associated with your Star ID in order to complete registration activities (add courses, change grading methods, drop courses, etc.).

We no longer use pin numbers. We have converted to using Star ID in instead of WSU Id and pin numbers.  Star IDs are used to log into Student eServices and D2L. For Star ID help, you can visit the website.
