After you are admitted to De Anza, you will receive an email with your 8-digit student identification number, also known as your Campuswide ID, or CWID.

You will use this number to log in to MyPortal, the online gateway to De Anza's student registration and records system. Here are some tips for logging in. 

Logging in for the first time

  1. Go to
  2. For your Campuswide ID, enter your 8-digit student identification number (CWID).

    (Example: March 5, 1998 would be 03051998)
  4. You will be prompted to create your new password – using letters and numbers, but no special characters. It's important to remember this password, especially if you don't have a Social Security Number.

  6. Once you are logged in, continue the steps listed on the Apply and Register webpage and the Registration Steps webpage.
