Pre-requisite Clearance Request

(NO Pre-requisite Clearance Request during the holiday, the service will resume January 3rd, 2018)


Laney College Student Success & Support Services Exemption Process
(ENROLLMENT HOLD ) – 2 types of Exemptions see below

(NO Student Success & Support Services Exemption Process during the holiday, the service will resume January 3rd, 2018)

By State regulation, all matriculating first time students are required to identify a program of study (major), complete an orientation, take assessment tests to determine appropriate course placement, and meet with a counselor to develop an education plan. These are the mandated Student Success and Support Program components (Orientation, Assessment, & Education Planning/Counseling). However, you may be exempt from assessment if you have completed it at another accredited institution. Fill out the “Release of Enrollment Hold-Exemption from Assessment” form.

*ATTACH ALL DOCUMENTS: failure to do so may result in a delay of processing your paperwork.

In addition, you may request exemption from ALL the Student Success and Support program requirements because:

1.You have already earned an Associate’s degree (AA/AS) or higher from an accredited college or university.

2. You are or will be a student at a non-Peralta Community College and are taking a course to satisfy a course requirement at your primary college (i.e., taking an intersession class).

3. Your educational goals do not include: transferring to a college/university from a Peralta Community College, attainment of a certificate or degree from a Peralta Community College, or career development.

4. You are enrolling in courses that are mandated for employment or in response to a significant change in industry or licensure standards

Complete the Exemption from All Student Success & Support Program Services Form if you DO NOT intend to participate in Orientation, Assessment, and Education Planning/Counseling. Although your chances for success in college are greater if you participate in all of the Student Success and Support Services (SSSP) components (Orientation, Assessment, & Education Planning/Counseling), you may be exempt from any or all of these services if you meet the criteria listed below. If you are exempted from these services, you may still participate at a later date.

Reminder: if you opt out of these services, you will NOT obtain priority registration for the following term.
