The first step would be to submit your enrollment application to the California Community College you would like to attend.  Once your application is submitted, please allow the college 1-2 business days to download and process the application.  Once they have done this, you will receive an email providing you with your student ID as well as credentials to log into the student portal.  At this time, you can then contact the records/admissions office to schedule an appointment with a counselor to create your educational goal.  I have provided the instructions to apply below and you will do this by logging in with your OpenCCC account credentials.  Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns.
Here’s how to apply:

1.) Please begin at 

2.) From the drop down menu on the right hand side select the college you are applying to and click the green 'Apply' link.
3.) You will be directed to the college’s Admissions page. 
4.) Select the online application link(s) from the Admissions page.
5.) Sign in with your OpenCCC account information, you will then be directed to the 'My Applications' page. 
6.) Select 'Start a New Application' link to begin application.

Once you have submitted an application it can take 1-2 business days for you to receive a student ID and enrollment information from your college. If more than 2 business days have passed and you have not been contacted by your college, please call our Helpdesk to confirm your application was submitted successfully.

Thank you,
