Digital ID Card

Digital ID Card App TileThe digital ID card is now available in MyPortal for use while campus is closed. To access it go to Apps then select the Digital ID Card app tile in the Students section. It is also accessible in the hamburger menu of the De Anza College App for Android and iOS. The digital ID card should show the college logo for the campus at which you are enrolled, your picture if there is one in the system*, your name, the year, quarter, and campus at which you are enrolled, the SmartPass logo if you are eligible to use it, a bar code, and your student ID number. *If you do not have a picture in our system there should be a placeholder silhouette in its place and you will need to show additional documentation such as Driver's License or Passport for identification verification. Unfortunately, there is no way to add pictures until we are all able to return to campus.

In addition, we have canceled the Flea Markets scheduled until September.
