Office 365 Migration

Normandale is migrating to the Minnesota State Office 365 Unified tenant. Got Questions? We're here to help.

UPDATE 2/7: The OneDrive migration is starting February 11. Please do not edit/create files until you can access them using the NEW Office 365. If you are currently enrolled in spring semester, you can access the NEW Office 365 OneDrive by logging in using StarID@go.minnstate.edu. Student email will not be moved until 2/26. Faculty and staff also have a OneDrive in the NEW Office 365 and can log in using StarID@minnstate.edu.
