MyUCSC Help for Applicants
MyUCSC is the portal used by applicants, students, faculty and staff. Users log in to MyUCSC with a CruzID. Applicants use the MyUCSC portal for tasks including but not limited to verifying receipt of admission materials, checking their admission status, stating their intent to register (SIR), signing up for orientation and viewing their financial aid offer. The portal is used by students to enroll in classes, check their grades, view their financial aid and billing accounts, and update their personal information. The portal also provides information on other campus services. For additional information, click the links below.

Applicants use CruzID Manager to claim their UCSC campus CruzID account and set their CruzID Gold Password. CruzID Manager is an application that provides authentication and password services for many campus systems, including MyUCSC, eCommons, Campus Housing, University Dining and SlugMail. Once the CruzID account has been claimed, the user may log in to MyUCSC using their CruzID.
New applicants to UCSC are sent a welcome letter that includes instructions on how to claim their CruzID and log in to MyUCSC.
Two to three business days after an applicant has stated their intent to register or accepted their admission offer, they become eligible for a campus e-mail account. Students log in to CruzID Manager to set their CruzID Blue password, which activates their e-mail account. All official e-mail correspondence from instructors and the campus are sent to the student's UCSC Email account.
New Summer Session applicants are sent a welcome letter that includes instructions on how to claim their CruzID and log in to MyUCSC. Applicants who have an existing CruzID account will need to contact the ITS Support Center for assistance if they do not know or do not remember their CruzID Gold password.
