You will need to have a working e-mail account to receive communication from the college. It is best to have your own e-mail address. If you do not have your own, you can opt to be assigned a free e-mail by CCCApply.
You will receive both your SID and PIN number by emails after completing the application. You will need these numbers to access your portal. The first time you access your student portal, you will be promoted to choose your own PIN code. Keep your SID and your PIN code in a safe and secure place. From your student portal, you will be able to add and drop classes, access your student records, and make changes to your personal information such as your e-mail address.
A "Quick Start Guide" (in English or Spanish) provides more information about applying and registering for classes through your student portal. Find it on the college home page and on the Admissions Web page at www.santarosa.edu/app/admissions/.
