In collaboration with CRANE, Sacramento City College faculty in Aeronautics programs will offer young women in high school and their CTE teachers a rare opportunity to participate in an interactive field trip to Sacramento City College’s McClellan campus.

During this May 5, 2017 Pathways to Paychecks event honoring Rosie the Riveter, students will get hands on training in: Flight Simulators, Mechanics, Electronics, Engines, and Airplane Transport.
Students will have access to the Sacramento City College Campus and Facilities to build projects in the target areas. They will have a chance to interact with college professors and industry professionals who are interested in the CTE students’ unique talents. In the course of this Keep ‘em Flying event, students will: engage in projects covering Aeronautics, Engines, Flight Simulators, & Non-Destructive Testing; familiarize themselves with SCC Labs and Facilities; interact with SCC professors; realize how valuable their skills are to industry; connect with industry professionals who are ready to help them become the next generation of aeronautics professionals; learn what steps to take after graduation to be successful in the industry; and enjoy a lunch with industry partners.

Hundreds visited Sacramento City College on Saturday, April 29, to check out the vintage vehicles at a free car show celebrating the college’s 100th anniversary.

The event also featured a momentous occasion — the opening of a time capsule that had been buried in front of the library entrance since 1998, when the building first opened. The time capsule was accompanied by instructions that it was to be opened in the college’s 100th year. Treasures inside included VHS tapes, an Apple computer mouse, newspapers, card catalogs, and a highlighter pen.

The time capsule is one of several buried throughout the college since it was established at the Freeport Boulevard location in 1926.

Students need to be aware that financial aid will only fund courses that are part of their major, general education and/or transfer, including basic skills, prerequisite, and ESL courses.

Once enrolled, students may receive a notification in their eServices account regarding courses that are ineligible for financial aid. Students who have questions about this should stay enrolled until they have met with a counselor.

Counseling appointments can be made online.

The BOG Fee Waiver is not affected. If a student has been awarded a BOG Fee Waiver, it will cover the enrollment fees for all courses, even those not required for the student’s major. However, the student’s total financial aid award may be reduced.

More information about financial aid course eligibility is available online.
