The Laney College Welcome Center is Here to Serve You, Remotely

*When contacting  us remotely: Please provide your full name, student ID# (if you have one), birthday and a return contact number.

Dear Laney Students and Community, during these uncertain times, where we have been asked to physically distance ourselves from one another, we want to assure you that your academic success is our number one goal. You can expect to receive the same friendly, professional support you have become accustomed to.

If you need assistance with the enrollment process, financial aid applications, passport, canvas, student email, or information about our student support services; please call: (510) 464-3540, press 4 to leave a message or email Charles Bradford at cbradford@peralta.edu. We are happy to share that we are in the process of securing the RemindApp texting tool so we can respond to your inquiries even faster.

We look forward to seeing you in person soon, but until then, know that we can get through this together.
