Student Identification Number and Card

Your College Identification (ID) Number

When your application is approved by SUNY Empire State College, you will be assigned a SUNY Empire ID number which will be used to identify your records at the college. This number is assigned so that you do NOT have to use your social security number when, for example, you contact a college office about your records. Check with your mentor or a student service person at your location if you don't know your SUNY Empire ID. Your ID number is included on your student ID card (see "Request a Student ID Card", below).

How to request a student ID card

You can request a student ID card by contacting the college contact listed below. SUNY Empire provides student ID cards at no cost to the student.

Students should send a digital or scanned 2" x 2" photograph as a .jpeg attachment to the contact email listed below and an identification card will be mailed to you after the term begins. Please include your name, student ID and the address where you would like the ID to be mailed.

Or you can mail your request to:
