Laney College



Summer 2020

It is very important that students who are waitlisted in any closed class should check their Peralta or campus email account by the 1st day of Summer 2020, June 15tht, 2020, Monday to get more detail information if there is an open space available to enroll the course by add/permission codes. Generally, I sent out the pre-course information about how to get started the course a few days earlier along with frequent emails with add code to those who are on the waitlist.

Laney college uses a Course Management System (CMS) called Canvas! All online students are required to login to Canvas from the Student portal. All online students must go through the information provided in Peralta Student Resources to get started.

First-Time Canvas Users must see Canvas Training presentation on Helping Students and Faculty at Peralta! 

Canvas 24/7 Help : (844) 600-4955

Students can update or check what is their campus email by login in Passport. If you need to retrieve your Passport User ID, please see this instruction.

Student Handout is a specific instruction that can help you redirecting Peralta student email to personal email.

Only students who are officially enrolled in the course in the college system will be able to request a password to create a Canvas account through their Peralta/campus email account as the username.

If a class is closed: Check the Passport System often as there will be changes to the enrollment every time a student drops. I recommend that you add your name to the Wait List before 1st day of class. After the first day of class, I will send a permission number to those who are on the waitlist, if space is available. Check your student email account frequently. If you are given a permission number, you must be enrolled within 48 hours, or you will forfeit your space in the class.
