I didn’t receive my I-20 yet.
Annie @ Peralta

rasilathapa
33:51
Good morning I haven’t got my I 20 as well
Yong
33:54
Okay then, I’ll skip the poll today.
Yong
34:01
Thank you! :)
Annie @ Peralta
34:06
For the poll, you should respond with which college did you get accepted to.
Yong
34:17
Great! I’ll do that.
Yue
35:02
I didn't receive my new I-20, too.
Annie @ Peralta
35:13
We will go over your new I-20s later.
rasilathapa

Jinhao Huangfu

Annie Liu @ Peralta

Everyone should also add us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. We regularly post up our latest information, including scholarships, on our social media
Annie Liu @ Peralta

Annie Liu @ Peralta

Quick summary: For Fall 2020, be sure to enroll into a minimum of 12 units (classes can be all online or hybrid). For post-covid, you can only take a maximum of 1 online class or 3 units, while maintaining a minimum of 12 units.
Annie Liu @ Peralta
53:07
To get your I-20: make sure that you enrolled in a minimum of 12 units, complete your Government Required Check-in on GPS, and we will email your I-20 to your Peralta email.
Rohit
53:10
'full time enrollment' i.e. being enrolled in 12 units ?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
53:20
Yes, full-time means a minimum of 12 units
Rohit
53:35
thanks
Ishneet Awal
54:03
Do we have to confirm from our old School, whether our SEVIS is transferred to new school?
Yong
54:30
For some reason, I don’t see Government Required Check in on GPS. Even after I log in.
Annie Liu @ Peralta
54:47
Yes, your old school should be able to let you know whether your I-20 have been transferred to us or not.
Ishneet Awal
54:58
Thanks!
Annie Liu @ Peralta
55:02
Hi Yong, can you privately message me your Student ID?
Kshitiz
56:04
Can I take classes in other colleges even if I am admitted in BCC?
Jinhao Huangfu
56:27
Quick question - I have already completed the government check-in on GPS, how long does it take the international office to process it?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
57:02
After you finish your government required check-in AND enroll in 12 units, our Admission Officers will begin to review enrollment and email you the new i-20s
shila
57:08
how can I transfer our credits from my previous university?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
57:35
To transfer your credit, contact your previous university to send your official transcripts to our Admissions & Records Office (admissions@peralta.edu)
Nasantogtokh
57:39
but most of the classes are full. I am on the waiting list. please explain about waiting list?
rasilathapa
58:05
can we apply for RCL more than 1 semester if it is for academic reason ?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
58:14
If you are on waitlist, you need to make sure that you have a backup class available in the event that you do not get in. We have a video on Youtube to discuss this. Please watch the “How to add classes” video.
Annie Liu @ Peralta
58:25
No, Academic RCL is for one semester maximum only
rasilathapa
59:00
Thank you Annie
Annie Liu @ Peralta
59:09
Summary about Academic Calendar: It is super duper important to drop your classes before the “last day to drop”, otherwise you will NOT get a refund. The refund dates are different depending on your start/end date. Please refer to our “How to Drop classes” video on Youtube
Thomas Torres-Gil
01:00:58
For reference Refund Drop Deadline Dates Page: https://web.peralta.edu/business/refund-drop-deadline/
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:01:25
Summary on RCL: You need to apply for RCL, but it does not mean that you are automatically accepted. You must wait until you hear back from an Advisor for approval, prior to dropping below 12 units.
Kshitiz
01:02:19
Can BCC students take classes in Laney or Alameda college?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:02:44
Yes, absolutely. Once you are a Peralta student, you can pick classes at all of our campuses. The courses will all show up under the same Peralta transcript.
Erika A. Pabon
01:04:36
I sent my request for RCL on Aug 6, when I will receive the response?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:07:02
Reminder for students: Use Passport Student Center for Academics/Finances/Update Personal Contacts. GPS is for your international student affairs
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:08:31
Reminder: Be absolutely sure to check in on your online classes through Canvas on your first day of class. If students do not “show up”, instructors can drop you from the class.
Elaine Da Silva Lima
01:09:26
II am not sure how can I pay for health insurance. When I login in my Peralata Student Center I did not see the option for that
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:09:48
Elaine, can you message me your Student ID?
Shanzay Awan
01:10:46
I also do not see the option to pay for health insurance
Rohit
01:11:06
so RCL works just once, one semester?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:11:17
For those who did not see your health insurance, please PM me your student numbers and I will have our International Program Managers add it on
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:11:25
We will do that after the meeting
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:11:45
@Rohit, Academic RCL is just once, but you have Last Semester and Medical RCL as well
Rohit
01:12:08
thanks
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:13:08
For those who messaged me their Student IDs for insurance, I have received it. We will take care of this after the orientation.
shila
01:15:38
yes sure
rasilathapa
01:26:51
does insurance cover dental and vision too?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:27:12
No, you have to add that in your 4studenthealth login to get supplemental insurance
rasilathapa
01:27:45
Thank you Annie
Rohit
01:28:22
what if by any rare occurrence an international student gets covid?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:28:46
The Health Center fee will cover free COVID-19 testing, and you can use your insurance to get treatment
Rohit
01:28:58
ok, thanks
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:29:15
Peralta students can get covid-19 testing in Oakland at our health center
Erika A. Pabon
01:29:32
Can you repeat that last part Michael please?
Sharon Toi
01:30:54
Hi it is said my user account is not found on canvas. Is there anyway can help me with that? Thanks!
rasilathapa
01:30:56
Lets say I wanna get vaccinated for certain disease just to be immune so would that be covered or do we need to pay out of pocket
rasilathapa
01:31:31
For instance yearly flu shot
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:31:37
@Sharon, you need to be enrolled in the class first, then you’ll later get the Canvas account. However, the class usually won’t show up until first day of class
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:31:58
Immunizations are not covered, except for the flu shot, which you can get at the Health Center
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:32:39
You can also get your TB test done through your Health Center, in case there are students who did not submit an updated TB test to us yet.
Sharon Toi
01:32:58
Oh ok thanks!
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:40:53
Fun fact: our #1 transfer school is to UC Berkeley. Go bears!
Sharon Toi
01:43:47
Hooray!
Annie Liu @ Peralta
01:46:33
If you need to set up an appointment with Todd to select your classes, please email him at tshima@peralta.edu with your Peralta Student ID
Annie Liu @ Peralta
02:01:08
Summary: If you are on waitlist, say #1-5, you are likely to get into the class. Students who enrolled might drop the class closer to the start of class and instructors may give out “Add Codes” during the first day of class so that you can still add the class.
Rohit
02:02:19
where can I check the exact wait list position?
Annie Liu @ Peralta
02:02:36
After you pick out the class on your Passport Student Center, it will tell you what number you are on
Annie Liu @ Peralta
02:02:46
When you search for the classes on the schedule, you can also see how many students are already on the waitlist
Annie Liu @ Peralta
02:02:59
Check out the “How to Add Classes” video on our Youtube later
Rohit
02:03:09
thanks
Nha Le
02:04:48
As a reminder to students: if you didn't send your student I.D to me, please do so. Thank you so much for your attendance today.
Kshitiz
02:11:45
I am having problem in making payment for health insurance.
Annie Liu @ Peralta
02:12:12
We’ll be reviewing student insurances after today’s orientation and make sure that they are added to your accounts.
Annie Liu @ Peralta
02:12:27
You will pay for the insurance fee just the same way that you pay for your classes.
Kshitiz
02:14:39
I am directed towards third party payments which says to enable cookies even though it is enabled in my browser
