Anoka Technical College uses Star Alert to send emails, text messages and phone calls during campus-related emergencies, including weather-related delays and closures.
Contact data like your school email address, primary/home phone and cell phones will be automatically enrolled in Star Alerts. If there are no changes to how you are contacted, there is nothing you need to do; however, you can always update your contact information or how you receive messages.
Anoka Technical College is revamping the way Star Alert (college emergency and weather-related messaging notification system) registrations occur. We are moving from an Opt-In (self-registration) to an Opt-Out (auto-registration) process.
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) will be purging current registrations by October 7, 2019 and auto-registering current students, faculty and staff into the Star Alert system.
If you are external to ATC (parent of a student, contract employee, etc.), you will need to re-register into the Star Alert portal on or after October 7, 2019.
Instructions to re-register will be provided Tuesday, October 8, 2019.
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is pleased to provide the following updates to the Office 365 Shared Tenant migration.
The most common questions are 1) how do I log into my email and 2) is StarID@go.minnstate.edu (students) or StarID@minnstate.edu (employees) my new email address?
You will use StarID@go.minnstate.edu or StarID@minnstate.edu as your login “username”, when prompted. StarID@go.minnstate.edu or StarID@minnstate.edu should not be used as a send/receive email address.
Continue to use your college-provided email (@my.anokaramsey.edu, @my.anokatech.edu, @anokaramsey.edu, @anokatech.edu) to communicate with your peers and colleagues.
