Welcome to Sacramento City College! SCC has a longstanding tradition of helping students who come from diverse backgrounds - of varying experience, resources, age and ability - to reach their academic and career goals. Whether you plan to transfer, earn a degree or certificate, or improve your basic skills proficiency, you will find that SCC offers a broad array of courses and services to help you get where you want to go.
While our economic climate may be challenging, it still holds true that higher education is a sound investment. We at SCC thank the voters for passing Proposition 30, which will allow the college to stay focused on what matters most - student success! In September 2012, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law the California Student Success Act, which puts in place a number of policy reforms intended to maximize orientation and counseling services for community college students. In line with these reforms, SCC is focusing on providing services that help students with early course planning, identifying majors or fields of study, and learning about college resources, such as tutoring, math labs and learning communities.
Be sure to visit the Student Support Services section of our website or catalog. In this section, you'll find useful descriptions of our college programs and services. Discover how the Transfer and Counseling centers can help you reach your academic goals. You can also visit SCC's 411 for Success, an online resource for first-year students, at www.saccity-online.org/sccfirstyear.
Complete the enrollment process as soon as possible. Classes are in high demand, so it is important to enroll in classes on the registration date assigned to you for the best chance of getting the classes you want. Visit www.scc.losrios.edu and click on "eServices" to find your registration date and get started.
Apply for financial aid early and on time. SCC's Financial Aid Office works hard to process students' files, and submitting your forms by the deadline is the best way to ensure you receive your financial aid on time. To apply for financial aid or check your application status, log in to My City Aid at www.scc.losrios.edu/financial-aid.
Thank you for choosing Sacramento City College as a pathway in your education journey. We will continue to uphold our promise to preserve college resources, while planning wisely and investing in efforts that will support our students' success now and into the future!
