Assesment/Orientation

This Orientation is an important beginning to your studies at the Peralta Community College District. We will be providing you with important information on a variety of topics including academics, immigration, safety, transportation, and much more!

We ask that you pay attention and try to learn as much as you can.

Fall 2017 Orientation Materials:

If you have any questions, please contact our office at (510) 466-7380 or by email globaled@peralta.edu.

ASSESSMENT EXAMS:

All students must take an assessment exam because the results will be used by our counseling staff to assist you in selecting the appropriate courses.

Our office has reserved ESL/Math Assessment Tests for you to take at Laney College which will take place at the Welcome Center, Building A, Room A-109. After taking this test, you will be required to attend the ESL Orientation at Laney College to receive your scores and become familiarized with the ESL program. (Note: You will need to also attend the mandatory International Student Orientation taking place on Friday, August 11th at 8:00am at the Peralta Community College District Board Room.
