Welcome to ESFiD setup and management

This process helps you set up your ESFiD for first use. it will also allow you to reset your password or unlock your ESF user account (ESFiD) whenever you need to do so. Before you can use your ESFiD, you need to set it up. The setup process asks for a password and security questions and records/stores your answers. This will allow you to setup and maintain your account in the future even if you have forgotten your password or if your account is ever locked out (due to, for example, too many incorrect log in attempts).

Start Here:

ESFiD Setup process:

STOP: Please make sure you setup/activate your SU NetID first at: https://selfserv.syr.edu BEFORE attempting to setup/use your ESFiD.

Step 1: 
Click the ESFiD setup link below and log in with your ESFiD (SU NetID username@esf.edu) and temporary password. 

A student’s temporary password is: ESF-XXXXXXXXX, where XXXXXXXXX is your 9-digit ID card number (without the dash). For example if Joe ESF Student’s SU NetID is jestud34 and his ID number is 12345-6789, his initial portal login will be:

Username: jestud34@esf.edu
Password: ESF-123456789

Step 2: Set your password.

ESFiD password requirements are as follows:
    • Passwords must be at least 8 characters long (a combination of letters, number and symbols).
    • Passwords must contain items from each from the following 4 categories: 
      • Special character (e.g. #,$,%,^, etc.) Note: please resist using the @, &, /, \, or = symbols in your password.
      • Capital letter (A,B,C, D, etc.)
      • Lower-case letter (a,b,c,d, etc.) 
      • Numeric character (1,2,3,4, etc.)

NOTE: Setting or resetting your password in the cloud affects all uses of the ESFiD. If you change your password, you will need to update it everywhere you use your ESFiD (e.g. on email account setup on phones/tablets and campus wireless connection profiles).

Step 3: Set and confirm your Self-Service Password Recovery portal options.

You need to complete 2 of the 3 password recovery methods presented and then confirm your settings to finish the process. That's it! Once registered, you can change your ESFiD password, or unlock you account, at any time from anywhere on any device at https://passwordreset.microsoftonline.com .


Once set up is complete, you can access your ESF email via https://email.esf.edu or https://portal.office.com
