What's My Campuswide ID/Student ID?

Your Campuswide ID (CWID) is an 8-digit identification number that is created when you submit an application. The number will be your Foothill and or De Anza college identification number and will remain the same throughout your educational career. You need your CWID to login to MyPortal and to conduct most of your college business including registration, fee payment, transcript requests, and many other services that require identification.

  • If you are a new student, your CWID/SID will be generated and e-mailed to you after you submit your application.

  • If you are a continuing or former student at Foothill College or De Anza College, a CWID has been automatically assigned to you. If you don't know it, you can look it up by following the steps below.
