If you have not attended one of the Peralta Colleges within the last two semesters, you must first submit an Admission application.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How long after I submit my CCCApply application will I be able to login & register?
You should be able to retrieve your User ID / password within 24 hours after your application is submitted. If you are not able to retrieve your User ID / password please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that if you have taken classes at Peralta in the past your application will be matched with our existing records. If there is a mismatch on social security number and or date-of-birth your application will be flagged and Admission & Records will need to manually process your application. If your application is flagged you will receive an email requesting that you contact A&R so that your application process can be completed.
