*All students, staff, faculty (and everyone else!!) must continue following safety protocols until further notice!
FEE-BASED NON-CREDIT CLASSES: No homework NO grades. No semester-long commitment. No lengthy online application. Open to all, these non-credit, pay-as-you-go classes are fun and enriching regardless of experience or knowledge level. We have some great classes lined up for you in the upcoming semester, including Aesthetic Pruning, Cannabis Cultivation, Floral Design…
Fee-based classes will be meeting online only throughout the Spring 2021 semester!
CLASS SCHEDULES: Do NOT rely on print schedule* or pdf
*Please note that class schedules (all programs) undergo many changes after the Merritt or Peralta-wide class schedules were printed. Don’t miss out- a class you need may have been added (or have been canceled, shifted to a new time or room, etc.). Be wise- always check the online regularly updated Campus Solutions (formerly Passport) class schedule. Check these pages for updates, news too!

ALWAYS OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT:

Wednesday mornings 9:30- 11:15am at Lakeside Park (use the side entrance to gardens that is across from Nature Center/Bird Dome)
That’s right, LH501 is always open for enrollment, throughout the semester, spring, summer and fall. This zero unit class is a great way to learn all about raised bed vegetable gardening and gardening basics, and all at your own pace. No grades, no commitment, no cost. and is taught by retired (only somewhat, apparently) long-time faculty member/former dept. chair Tom Branca.

Important note about printed schedules
The Peralta-wide schedule of classes is printed far in advance of the semester, and many schedule changes are inevitable. Don’t rely solely on the printed schedule of classes, as it won’t show room, instructor, and day/time changes, canceled classes, or classes that have been ADDED to the schedule!
Stay in-the-know for our dept. by checking here, or by using Peralta’s online Campus Solutions searchable schedule of classes, where you will always find the most up-to-date class schedule info for all four Peralta colleges!
