STARS ID Numbers

STARS ID numbers are required to record completed STARS training. Provide us with your STARS ID number on the evaluation form at the end of the training. If you already have a STARS ID number, it can easily be looked up on the MERIT website by just typing your last name and birth date in the search fields under "Find My STARS ID". It is not necessary to log into your MERIT account to find your STARS ID number if you have one already.

What if I don't have a STARS ID number?

A student can receive a certificate without a STARS ID number, however it will not earn STARS credit and will say on the certificate that it is not for STARS. For STARS credit, the STARS ID number must be provided on the evaluation form at the end of the training.
