5 Steps To Enrollment

Apply Online

You’ll begin the online application process by creating an OpenCCC account.

During this process you'll be asked for your intended major and an educational goal, along with some basic personal, educational and residency information.

After applying, you’ll receive your Student ID Number (G-Number) via email.

Information for undocumented students.

Attend Orientation

New Student Orientation, either online or in-person, will provide you with the information, resources, and tools you need to be successful at Skyline College.

We offer an Online Orientation for students who cannot come to campus, although we highly recommend you schedule an in-person Orientation through our counseling office located in Building 2.


Skyline College offers two options:

  • You may take Placement Tests in English / English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and mathematics to help determine appropriate course placement.
  • You may be evaluated through Alternative Placement by using high school transcripts and/or tests.

Meet with a Counselor

Counselors are here to help you navigate your educational experience and reach your goals. When you meet with a counselor you’ll discuss your placement results, select the courses that are right for you and create a thorough educational plan to help you map out your academic experience.

Schedule an appointment with a counselor.

Enroll in Classes

Once you’ve completed steps 1-4, you’ll be issued your registration date. Please note that you will only be able to register for classes on or after your registration date. Visit WebSMART to register for classes, pay fees, view grades, access your student email and purchase a parking permit.
