COVID-19 Pandemic Updates
The campus is currently closed to students and most staff. Please see the Online Winter webpage for more information.
While you won't be able to visit us in person during the pandemic, you can still reach us by email or phone (it is best to use email at this time). We will be periodically checking our email and voicemail between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday - Friday., and we will respond as soon as we can.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to
- Produce physical photo ID cards or SmartPass Clipper cards (see messages below about the Digital ID Card and Digital VTA SmartPass)
- Process meeting and event requests for clubs and DASB
- Check out bicycles
- Current bike holders please see here for a message about bike returns.
Digital ID Card
The digital ID card is now available in MyPortal for use while campus is closed. To access it go to Apps then select the Digital ID Card app tile in the Students section. It is also accessible in the hamburger menu of the De Anza College App for Android and iOS. The digital ID card should show the college logo for the campus at which you are enrolled, your picture if there is one in the system*, your name, the year, quarter, and campus at which you are enrolled, the SmartPass logo if you are eligible to use it, a bar code, and your student ID number. *If you do not have a picture in our system there should be a placeholder silhouette in its place and you will need to show additional documentation such as Driver's License or Passport for identification verification. We are currently working with the VTA to get the digital ID card accepted as a temporary SmartPass while campus is closed; please check back for future updates.
Digital VTA SmartPass
While the campuses are closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we are unable to give out SmartPass Clipper Cards. The VTA is temporarily providing passes for SmartPass eligible students while the campuses are closed through the VTA EZfare app for iPhone and Android.
The VTA SmartPass and your VTA EZfare account will be associated with your primary personal email address in your FHDA profile. Please make sure your email address is up to date before requesting your SmartPass.
After submitting your request if you are eligible your email address will be sent to the VTA within one week. The VTA will then email you about your transit pass; the email will be from moovelna.com.
To submit a request for a digital SmartPass please log in to MyPortal, go to Apps, scroll down to the Students section, then click on VTA SmartPass.
