Student Identification Numbers and ID Cards
When you enroll at SUNY Empire State College, you will be assigned an 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. Check with your mentor or the coordinator of student services at your location if you don’t know your SUNY Empire State College ID.
The college issues ID cards to students upon request. Most of the students need ID cards to check out books or use library facilities at SUNY or CUNY colleges and universities.
