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. 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 web sites. To activate your login access to MyESC, just go to "My Records" on MyESC and choose the link "Activate My Login". For more information about your login and other college accounts, visit the knowledge base at our online service desk.
