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.

Time Wise speaking on stage

Tim hosted an interactive talk and breakout session in which participants were invited to examine institutional practices and procedures which often inadvertently perpetuate unequal opportunity and treatment.

Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States. He is the author of seven books including his latest, Under the Affluence: Shaming the Poor, Praising the Rich and Sacrificing the Future of America and his highly acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son.

Through Wise’s lively and informed talk, attendees discussed tools and developed strategies for shifting the institutional culture at SCC in the direction of greater parity.

The Panthers completed their regular season with their seventh straight win, a 95-74 win at American River College (ARC). Down 12 early, the team closed the half on a 28 to 8 run to lead by 8 at the break. American River cut the lead to 2 in the second half, but the Panthers pulled away for the win.

Sac City finishes in second place in the Big 8, a game behind Santa Rosa. KJ Duronslet posted 32 points and 13 rebounds, to more than offset 25 points and 12 rebounds from ARC’s Jerico Avery. Michael Wadsworth had 19 points, while Gabe Serna came off the bench to contribute 16 points.

Congratulations to Coach Jones, the entire coaching staff, and the players for securing a spot in the 2017 CCCAA State Playoffs!
