    Hi Meg, 

    In order to receive your surf ID (student ID number from the college) you'll need to apply and submit an admissions application over to your community college first. Once your college receives your application, they'll take upwards to 2 to 3 business days to process your application and email you back with your surf ID number as well as your next step of the enrollment process. Below are the steps to begin your application. 

    1.) Please begin at 
    2.) From the drop down menu select the college you are applying to and click 'Apply'.
    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.
