Set Password

Enter your nine-digit student ID number in the Username field.

If you are not sure what your ID number is, you should be able to find it on the back of your BLUECARD or on your statement or printed class schedule. Your student ID is also present on most official communication from SFCC. After entering your ID number, select the continue button.

This will present a new pop-up window where you will enter your current password and select continue.

Next, enter a new password.

Confirm Password

Your new password must be:

  • At least eight characters
  •  May not contain any part of your student ID number, name or birthday
  • Must contain at least three of the following:
    • Lowercase letter
    • Uppercase letter
    • Number

Once you have entered a new password, enter it again to confirm.

Now, using the password that you just changed you can log in to mySTAR on the home screen at, by entering your nine-digit student ID number and the password that you just created.

If you have set up your email to phone – remember to update your password there!

If you forget your password or need to change it for any reason, select the “Change / Forgot Password” link below the login box on the mySTAR home screen to access myPassword Center and follow the prompts.
