About the Student Campuswide ID

To help prevent identity theft and to comply with government legislation, De Anza provides students with an assigned Student Identification Number (SID), also known as Campuswide ID. This SID/CWID is an 8-digit, system-generated number that is used instead of your Social Security Number.

All students are required to use this number to log in to the registration system.

Retrieve your Student ID/Campuswide ID by going to the MyPortal login page and resetting your password.

Your SID/CWID will be e-mailed to you.

Memorize it. It will be used with your new MyPortal password that you will create the first time you log in to MyPortal.

If you cannot retrieve your SID/CWID in this manner, you will be required to present a photo identification at the Admissions and Records Office to retrieve the number. For security reasons, personal identification numbers cannot be released over the phone or through email.
