To use Canvas, all students need to have a CCCID, the California Community College's common student ID.

If you do not have a CCCID, clicking Canvas from Lobo Apps will send you to a screen where you can get a CCCID by creating a new account with OpenCCC. Click "Create a new account" and follow the directions.  This short process does not require an application or a Social Security Number (SSN).

For help with creating a CCCID, please contact MPC's Admissions & Records department in person on the lower floor of the Student Services Building on the Monterey campus, by phone at (831) 646-4002, or by emailing

For help with a Canvas course, please submit a Canvas help ticket, or email
