How do I log in?
Go to www.startribune.com and in the upper right corner click “Log In.” When prompted, log in with the username and password that Star Tribune provided for your school.
How should I share with faculty and students at my school?
Share the username and password directly with faculty and students at your school. They can all access through those login credentials.
Can others outside the school log in?
No. The username and password provided is intended for only staff and students within your school.
How long will the subscription be active?
Your school’s subscription will be active until we transfer you to integrated, one-click access. After receiving quality feedback from administrators, teachers, and students in multiple school districts, starting in the 2021-22 school year we are pursuing an ambitious goal of providing one-click access to Star Tribune for Minnesota school districts through their Learning Management Systems. This will be a much easier way for you and your students to access Star Tribune content.
This new access will also be provided at no cost. We truly want to be a helpful resource for Minnesota educators and a source of credible, local journalism for students.
We are working diligently to provide this opportunity and hope to begin rolling it out in the 2021-22 school year. Until then, this subscription will be active. We will communicate well in advance of the transition.
What can we access with this subscription?
Your subscription is full digital access which includes access on www.startribune.com, the Star Tribune app, and each day’s eEdition (digital replica of the printed newspaper). See the guide for how to use the eEdition here.
Can I still get a printed newspaper?
Yes. Printed newspapers for schools is the same discounted subscription option as in years past. To see pricing and how to order, please see the PDF form at the bottom of the webpage linked here.
Is Star Tribune capturing student data or targeting students with advertisements?
No. Being this is a shared login credential offer, we will be unable to capture individual data on each user (and we do not want to for students). With that, we will not be targeting students specifically with
Is there a way to get rid of advertisements entirely?
No. We are not altering the user experience specifically for schools. We are providing access to our content, so users in your district will access Star Tribune news the same way each of our customers experience Star Tribune.
Are faculty and students able to comment on stories through this username?
No. Being so many users will be accessing through the same username, we have disabled the commenting functions (so, for example, one student will not be able to make a public comment on behalf of your school’s username). This is a result of direct requests from teachers throughout the state.
