IMPORTANT - This is an application form for admission into SCE for New Students Only!
Do not fill this application out if you have ever taken classes with the School of Continuing Education, Cypress College or Fullerton College. This application is for students new to the North Orange County Community College District, which includes the institutions noted above.
You are considered a new student if you have never applied with Cypress College, Fullerton College, or the School of Continuing Education.
How to Expedite Your Application
- Please provide a Social Security Number. Providing your Social Security number allows us to process your application more efficiently and avoid creating duplicate student records. It also allows the state to continue funding quality learning opportunities for you and the community.
- You MUST provide a personal e-mail address if you choose to apply online. By providing an e-mail address, you will be able to reset your PIN at any time without having to contact the registration office. Additionally, providing an e-mail will also allow you to look up your Banner ID (aka student ID) number via myGateway should you ever need to retrieve it.
- Choose a PIN that you can remember. At the end of the application, you will be asked to select a PIN to use when registering using myGateway. Your PIN must be exactly six characters long and can contain numbers and letters.
Once your application is submitted and processed, you will receive an e-mail containing your Banner ID and instructions on how to register.
You are considered an existing student if you have ever applied or taken classes at Cypress College, Fullerton College or the School of Continuing Education.
If you are an existing student you may register online using your Banner ID number. You do not need to fill out this application! If you have forgotten your Banner ID number, you may utilize the “Forgot Banner ID” tool on the login screen of myGateway, assuming you provided us with a valid e-mail address at the time you previously applied. If you did not provide us with an e-mail address or you wish to update the e-mail we have on file, please visit any one of our three campus locations to make the change in-person. Unfortunately, we cannot release Banner ID numbers nor can we change or add e-mail addresses to student records over the phone for security reasons. You may also choose to fax us a written consent to (714) 992-9599 and include the following information: your full name, date of birth, e-mail address to be added/updated, signature, and contact phone number.
Should you have any issues with your PIN, you may reset it on the login screen of myGateway by using the “PIN Reset” feature. The system will ask you for the last 4-digits of your SSN (if you have provided it to us) or the last 4-digits of your Banner ID number, in addition to your e-mail address (note: this field is case sensitive). If you encounter any problems with either of the above-mentioned functionalities, please call the Online Registration Helpline at (714) 808-4679 - Mon – Fri, 7am – 5pm. You may also send a detailed e-mail of the difficulties you are experiencing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
