Laney College



We are still in a remote instruction where there are no in-person meetings for all classes this semester. However, some of my courses will have a live Zoom meeting according to the college schedule. For those meetings, students join them from Canvas, thus I will not provide a separate link or passcode. Login Canvas and check the course syllabus for more details. If you already enrolled in my course(s), please visit the Laney college bookstore website to purchase your textbook to have it ready by the 1st week of the course.

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 the semester. As soon as there is an open space available to enroll in the course by add/permission codes, I send an email. 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. Start the course ahead of time if you want!

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! 

Our IT support team will provide your Canvas login information if you send an email to 

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.
