SCC Identification Number (SCCID)

Beginning with the Spring 2007 registration period, Solano Community College will begin using the SCC Identification number (SCCID) as another method to identify you. Your SCCID will be assigned shortly after the beginning of the Fall 2006 semester, upon which time your social security number will no longer be used as your primary identifier.

This legally mandated change will provide an added layer of protection to combat the ever-increasing occurrences of identity theft.

Students who apply for financial aid and who deduct their eligible fees from their income tax are required by law to provide the College with their social security number.

All Solano College students will be issued their unique 9-digit SCCID that will begin with 000. This randomly assigned number has no connection to your social security number.

How will I get my SCCID?
Students will be assigned their unique SCCID number during the Fall 2006 semester. We will mail your SCCID to your home address.

What number do I use if I want to apply online?
If you submit an online application, you will need to enter your social security number. The application does not require you to enter your SCCID.

If I am a new student, how do I get an SCCID?
New students will receive this information by mail from the Admissions and Records Office after an application for admission has been submitted.

What do I do if I lose or forget my SCCID?
Go to the Admissions and Records Office with photo identification, and we will give you your SCCID.

When I go to the Admissions and Records Office, what number will they ask for?
When requesting services, you will be able to provide either your SCCID or your social security number; however, we want to encourage you to memorize and use your SCCID. All fee receipts and registration schedules will display your SCCID. Your social security number has been removed from these documents.

How will this affect the way I register for classes?
You will not have to enter your SSID or your Social Security Number to register for classes. Once your application has been processed, you will be able to look up your SCC Username and Password. You will use your SCC Username and Password to register for classes on our new registration site called My Solano.

Is it safe to enter my social security number on the internet?
Our website uses SSL 128-bit encryption to create a secure connection. No clear-text or unencrypted information is exchanged; therefore, no information can be read by anyone other than the intended recipient.

Do I still need to provide my social security number to the College?
Yes. You are required to provide your social security number upon submission of an Application for Admission, or if you are applying for and receiving financial aid, or if you intend to deduct your eligible fees from your income taxes.

How will the College use my social security number?
Solano Community College handles your social security number in a confidential manner. Your social security number will be used for mandated business functions such as tax reporting to federal and state government agencies and will continue to be included on your transcript and verifications of enrollment, since the social security number is the common identifier used by Higher Education Institutions.
