Student Identification Number, Card and Login
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).
Your College Login
Your college login provides you with access to MyESC, an important student communications portal at our web site. Once you have created a permanent password, you will be able to check the status of your financial aid and billing, make payments, register online, access the online library resources and the DP Planner software tool, as well as other college websites. For more information about your login and other college accounts, visit www.esc.edu/begin to Set Up Your Student Account or visit Student Technology or the Knowledge Base at IT Service Desk.
You can request a student ID card by contacting your location or program. The college provides student ID cards at no cost to the student.
Due to temporary office closures, please anticipate a delay in the processing of your requests.
