Welcome to Diablo Valley College! We are excited to start you on your path to academic and life success. Already a DVC student? Once you've found the classes you want to take, you can go directly to InSite to register.
Welcome Services provide one-on-one assistance via zoom to students who need help with completing the application, online orientation, English and math placements and registering for classes. (Welcome Services does not provide academic advising. If you need help with selecting classes visit the Counseling Page)
If you need one-on-one assistance, please complete the Virtual Lab request form.
PLEASE NOTE: All attendees are required to turn on their audio and video functions as well as show a photo ID (e.g. driver’s license, CA ID, passport, high school ID, etc.). In compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), we will only discuss account information directly with the student.
