Student Identification Number Release Policy

Bay Path University uses a nine-digit student identification (ID) number that is randomly generated and assigned at the time of a student’s enrollment. The University complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, which governs the maintenance of student records including student ID numbers.

The University does not disclose student ID numbers to individuals or agencies outside of Bay Path University. Student ID numbers are disclosed to the student upon reasonable verification of the student’s identity.

  1. For new students, upon enrollment, the student ID number will be included in a communication from the ITS department, “Directions for Accessing your new Bay Path University Account”
  2. Student ID numbers are printed on the front of the Bay Path University photo ID
  3. Search for the student ID number online on the “My Bay Path” portal Personal Info page (Biographical Info tab)
  4. Contact the Registrar’s Office; in person by bringing a valid, government issued photo ID or provide identification verification over the phone (413-565-1222) by answering a series of unique security questions
