The ACCESS Office

June Update

In an effort to meet CDC and Santa Clara County guidelines, the ACCESS Office will contact you via email to submit an image for your credential.

All new students will be issued a mobile credential (Android or iOS) which can be set up remotely. 

Faculty and Staff will be issued physical credentials which will be available three business days after the receipt of an approved image. 

Beginning June 22, 2020, the ACCESS Office will be open for limited hours, by appointment only. For questions, or to schedule an appointment to pick up your card, please call 408 551-1647 or email
