Account Trouble?

Current Students: If you have activated your Syracuse University Net ID, be sure you log in using your Net ID.

Applicant email accounts are not valid once ESF has received your Net ID from SU (this takes a few days to complete), or after your first semester begins.

Student Log In Error? If you are a current student, make sure you've started using your Net Id to log in. Applicant accounts are no longer valid for current students.

Alumni: MyESF is for current students. If you need your student records, please contact the Registrar's Office.

Password Trouble?

Your password is not kept in sync with your Syracuse University password automatically. Default password information is below, or you can reset your password here.

Until you change it, the default ESF password for a Net ID login is the last 5 digits of your SU ID# followed by an exclamation “!”.
Example: for SU ID #123456789, your default password is 56789!

Still Need Help?

Welcome to MyESF!

NOTE: Enrolled students log in using their NET ID once they have activated their Syracuse University email address:
NET ID = the portion before the "@" in
Otherwise, use a personal email address, as discussed below.
