Are CWID applications handled manually or automatically?

I applied for a CWID about an hour ago, I was told I should get an email back with my CWID within 10-20 minutes of submitting my application, yet this has yet to occur. I need my CWID by tomorrow to apply for a course due to deadlines, are CWIDs applications reviewed automatically or manually? Can I expect to have it later today or by tomorrow at latest?


  • Hello @Sidney_Zhang_Dunten

    The Helpdesk is not able to provide you with your student ID. I suggest contacting your admissions office to obtain your student information. The typical wait time is 1-2 business days to receive your welcome email from one of our California Community Colleges. Please call Foothill College at (650) 949-7325 for more information.

    Thank you,
