Your D'Youville ID (or DYC ID) is a personal, unique identifier assigned to every student and employee. It is used, along with a password to get secure access to services at D'Youville, including:

  • DYC webmail (D'Youville's web-based email service)
  • STACI (if you're a student), a web-based portal where you can view your tuition bill and class registration)
  • DYC networks (for Internet access when you're on campus)
  • Computers and printing services at our campus labs

When do I get my DYC ID?

  • Students: DYC IDs are assigned when you register for classes.
  • Employees: DYC IDs are created after your hiring paperwork has been processed by DYC Human Resources.
  • If your assigned DYC ID does not work, contact the DYC Help Desk Center.
