Drop-in Counseling

Drop-in counseling is limited to 10-15 minutes, on a first-come, first served basis, for these kinds of services:

  • General information
  • Initial enrollment assistance (including review of assessment results and help planning a first semester)
  • Prerequisite checking and clearance (including challenges)*
  • Clearing probation holds (Academic and Progress probation)
  • Petitions for Matriculation exemptions (i.e., students who have earned an Associate degree or higher, students enrolled in fewer than 12 units with designated educational goals, etc.)

*To clear prerequisite holds, you must have completed an application and be in the Peralta CCD Passport system, have a Social Security Number or Student Identification Number, and have official or unofficial transcripts for courses to be used to clear the prerequisite taken outside PCCD.  In some cases, you must also provide a course description, syllabus, or other supporting documentation.
