Community College Survey of Student Engagement
We are asking students to take the Community College Survey of Student Engagement to help administrators, faculty, and staff at Berkeley City College find the best ways to make classes, programs and services better. Your responses will remain confidential. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete the survey. When you finish the survey, you will qualify for a gift card drawing.
The survey is now closed as of 6/7/2021.

Chancellor Announcement: PeopleSoft Upgrade Phase One Complete
Dear Peralta Community,
Earlier this week, the Peralta Community College District completed Phase One of our technology upgrade of Oracle’s PeopleSoft system. This has been an all consuming project. Together, we did it.
With Phase One complete, we have successfully moved our enterprise system for finance, human resources, and student data management to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Moving to the Oracle Cloud improves our cyber security and provides increased protection of student and employee personal information. It also provides for enhanced disaster recovery (let us hope that aspect is not needed).
Also included in Phase One was the upgrade of our tools Passport, PROMT, and ONE Peralta to PeopleSoft version 9.2. The names of the tools and the URLs have changed, while the functions and workflows remain the same for now.
Passport is now known as Campus Solutions. We’ve created a landing page for students at https://web.peralta.edu/admissions/student-campus-solutions/. Employees can navigate to Campus Solutions here: https://sa.peralta.edu/
PROMT has been replaced by Campus Solutions and Human Capital Management. We’ve created a landing page for Employees here to help guide you to the right place: https://web.peralta.edu/faculty-staff-center/
The URL for Campus Solutions is https://sa.peralta.edu/ – Faculty should use this site for accessing the Faculty Center, schedule search, rosters, grades and other tasks about classes or students.
The URL for Human Capital Management is https://hcm.peralta.edu – Faculty and other employees should use this site to view checks, benefits, W-2, update personal information and other HR related functions.
ONE Peralta has been replaced with Finance Management, now located at https://fm.peralta.edu/
