To join our International Program, you must be 18 years old before the start of the semester for which you are applying.
- You will first create an OpenCCC account to begin an application (if you have never applied through CCCApply).
- If you have any issues with logging into your existing OpenCCC account, the helpdesk is available to assist and can be reached at 1.877.247.4836

Within 24-48 hours after you have applied online, you should receive an Admission Acknowledgement email from SCCCD Admissions & Records with your activated Student ID# and MyPortal login information. If you have not received an email after 48 hours, check your spam/junk folder. If it is not in the spam/junk folder, call the Reedley College Admissions & Records Office at (559) 494-3023 for assistance.
Once you receive your Student ID#, you can then log in to your student portal. Click on My Portal located at the top right of any webpage on the Reedley College website. Once you log in to your student portal you can access your Student Email, Canvas, Self-Service, and other useful tools.

Important: A pop up will appear the first time you log in to your portal to ask you to confirm/update your Communication Preferences. Students must update their Communication Preferences to enroll in emergency notifications and the password reset system (in case you are unable to login to your portal). This pop up will appear each time you log in to your portal until you update your preferences, so it is recommended you complete this step the first time you log in.
