Version 2.1.2 - Last update: January 21, 2022


This user guide is intended for authorized CCC college and district staff users of the CCC MyPath student onboarding portal.


College administrators and students both log in to their college/district portal via single sign on (SSO). Only the college administrator and its students (to whom it gives access via IdP authentication credentials) can access the college/district portal page. The required login credentials and authentication are explained in more detail in Authenticating With College IdP

Multi-Tenancy Features

Each college/district portal is contained by the larger CCC MyPath portal. Administrative access to each portal is restricted to the collegeportal administrator for that college. From a software application point of view, the CCC MyPath portal is one application that serves every college/district. In technical terms, each college or district portal is called a "tenant" of the CCC MyPathportal. As such, the larger portal supports what is referred to as "multi-tenancy." 


Your "role" in the Portal is determined by your Identity Service Provider (IdP). Each college /district portal's administrator will define those roles as part of setting up their IdP. When first integrating with the CCC MyPath portal, your college/district will most likely include an IdP role for the college portal administrator and students. Later, your college/district may want to add one or more college staff IdP roles.  See Authenticating with College IdP.

The collegeportal administrator manages the content of their college's portal by creating portlets using a variety of built-in portlet tools. The portlets you can create include:

  • Static content portlets

  • App Launchers

  • Surveys (with smart forms)

  • Advisor cards (with notifications)


The college portal administrator manages content by creating specific portlets and then adding or removing them for specified user groups, applying portlet expiration dates, etc. The steps to do all of this are included within the instructions for creating each of the different portlets currently available, including:

Each task has a duration and as the tasks on a card are completed, a green status bar shows current state of completion.

A key concept in DLM is the "fragment." A fragment, in context of the Portal, is a layout element or piece that can be pushed out/merged into the larger end-user layout display. See Fragment Administration Vs. Personal Customization below for more information.
