Specialty Programs & Fee-Based Classes

♦ Our fee-based classes are open to anyone, both Peralta students and community members alike.

Besides our strong academic programs, we also offer several specialty programs for career enhancement and/or personal enrichment. Whether you are a graduate, a new or continuing student, or simply someone interested in horticulture and gardening, we offer a broad scope of classes that anyone can take.

Most of our specialty programs are delivered via fee-based classes, that is, classes offered outside of the academic programs of the college. You can sign up for as many or as few of these classes as you like, and repeat them as often as you like. There are no restrictions. Most are offered on Saturdays or during the evening.

Registration for fee-based classes is by mail or phone. Use the registration form (PDF) or call (510) 436‐2418.  Please note that due to District policy, we can only accept checks for fee-based classes.  While we recognize it may be inconvenient, neither cash nor credit are acceptable forms of payment.  Thank you for your understanding.

Please explore the links at left to see what we offer.  Current schedules are posted under the Quick Links section.
