Check your author profile on the publishers' website, find a field to add your ORCID iD to it. The implementation timeline of ORCID integration of various publishers can be found here. If your academic advisor is submitting the manuscript, ask them to add you as co-authors in the system with the email you used to create the author profile. Your linked ORCID iD should show up in the final publication.
Examples of ORCID integration in IEEE and ACS manuscript submission system.
