CCC - Identity Verification

All new applicants and existing students 18 years or older will be able to opt-in or opt-out of ID Verification.

Certain populations of students won’t be able to use

  • Those with no valid identity documentation from country of origin
  • Those with no permanent address (housing insecure/unhoused)
  • Those with no internet access or a smartphone
  • Minors

For students that aren’t able to use, there will be a 24/7 student support provided by that will allow you to connect via live chat to verify your identity. You will also be able to verify in-person with Admissions and Records at Shasta College. Your verified status will last for one year.
