Keep a record of your application confirmation number in case you experience problems or need to call us. New students will receive an email from Peralta Admissions to the email address listed on your application with information about enrollment and instructions on how to log into the PASSPORT Student Administration System. While you only need to submit an application to one college, you will be able to enroll in classes at all four.

STEP 2 – Student Success and Support Program 

(If you have been notified that you are an Exempt student, proceed to Step 3.) The Student Success Program requirements may be necessary for some students before enrolling in classes.  

  • Assessment – Assessment in English or English as a Second Language (ESL) and Mathematics will be used by counselors to help you choose classes. See the current Schedule of Classes for the Assessment schedule and make an appointment.
  • Orientation – You will enroll in an orientation course designed to familiarize you with the college and its services, assist you in selecting classes and create your abbreviated Student Education Plan (SEP). See the current Schedule of Classes for available Counseling courses.
  • Counseling and Advisement – See a counselor for additional help with your educational goals. Contact the counseling office at the college you will be attending to schedule an appointment. (Please bring non Peralta transcripts and assessment test results to your counseling appointment.)
