Student Identification Number, Card and Login

Your College Identification (ID) Number

When your application is approved by Empire State College, you will be assigned an Empire State College 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 Empire State College 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 Activate Your Login, 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 Student Technology or the Knowledge Base at IT Service Desk.
