How to Become a De Anza College DSS StudentAt De Anza College, we've made it easy to apply for admission and qualify for priority enrollment, so you can get the classes you need to achieve your goals. In order to receive your disability-related services and accommodations at De Anza College, you must first complete these steps:
De Anza uses the statewide application system known as OpenCCC. OpenCCC is a service of the California Community Colleges Chancellor' Office. You must become a De Anza College student by completing the college application and receive your 8 digit campuswide ID (CWID) number and password to access the college’s MyPortal site.
Please allow 5-6 working days for processing your college application. There may be a slight delay of an additional day or two if Admissions and Records needs more information to process your application. Students will be contacted if that becomes necessary.
Due to California state regulations, not declaring an Educational Goal/Major of obtaining a degree or certificate will result in you receiving a late registration date. This means you will be issued the last date to register for classes. Also, if you do not choose an educational goal/major, you will not be eligible for financial aid.
If you want to qualify for priority registration, remember to do the following when you fill out the application:
- Declare a major (not "undecided") and
Select a goal of transfer, degree or certificate
For more help, visit the page on Tips for Completing the Application.
