Application & Enrollment Steps

New & Former Students:

Choose a Home Campus

  • Although you are applying to one campus, you will be able to enroll in classes at all four Peralta campuses.

Create an OpenCCC Account and Complete an Application

  • Create an OpenCCC account if you do not yet have one. Creating the OpenCCC account does not mean you have submitted an application.
  • Complete an application. Save the seven-digit confirmation number for reference.

How do I choose a home campus?

  • If you know your intended major, choose the campus that offers your major.
  • If you are undecided or your major is offered at multiple campuses, choose the campus where you intend to spend the most time and where you plan to receive services (e.g. counseling).

How long will it take for my application to be processed?

You will receive a welcome email within 24 hours with your student ID and Passport Student Center login information, or if returning, instructions on how to retrieve this information.

If you have not received an email within 24 hours, please contact reset@peralta.edu with your Full Name, Application Confirmation #, and Date of Application.

How do I get my Student ID #?

You will receive a welcome email within 24 hours with your student ID and Passport Student Center login information, or if returning, instructions on how to retrieve this information.

If you have not received an email within 24 hours, please contact reset@peralta.edu with your Full Name, Application Confirmation #, and Date of Application.

I previously took classes at a Peralta College. Do I need to reapply?

You are considered a former student and will need to submit a new application if you you have not attended and received a grade (including W or I) at one of the Peralta Colleges within the last two main terms (fall and spring).

In order to ensure student success, most new students are required to complete an orientation, assessment, and counseling session before enrolling in classes.

Some new students are exempt from completing these services based on their goals and previous educational attainment. If your welcome email states that you are an Exempt student, proceed to Step 3.

Orientation 
You will complete an in-person or online orientation designed to familiarize you with the college and its services, and to help you get started choosing classes.

Assessment 
Assessment in English or English as a Second Language (ESL) and Mathematics will be used by counselors to help you choose classes.

Counseling and Advisement
See a counselor for additional help with your educational goals. (Please bring non Peralta transcripts and assessment test results to your counseling appointment.)

 

This step is OPTIONAL. However, there are many financial assistance options available to help pay for your fees and other expenses. To receive financial aid you must apply for it. The biggest mistake students make is not to apply because they don’t think they’ll qualify.

 

See our Financial Aid page for more information.
