Student FAQ

EMPLID is the unique CUNY identification number assigned to every student, faculty and staff member in CUNYfirst.

If you are a CUNY student and/or employee, your CUNY Login account username will be in the format, where “NN” is the last 2+ digits of your CUNY EMPLID. If you are a guest user, your CUNY Login account username will be the one you set in the CUNY Portal.

Most students will be prompted to claim/activate their CUNY Login account and set a password as part of the online student application process; most employees as part of the new-hire onboarding process. If you have not set the password for your CUNY Login account, you can use the New User link at the bottom of the CUNY Login page.
