In the Consulate building, three SCC financial aid officers assisted in the “Cash for College” section. Jeanette, Jonathan, and Javier assisted approximately 25 students and their families complete the FAFSA/CA Dream Act application.

At the Counseling Station, Irma Rodriguez, SCC EOPS Counselor, assisted 26 people while sharing a table with a high school counselor from Roseville and an EAOP student advisor from UC Davis. Mauricio Gonzalez, SCC Counselor, was also kept busy assisting approximately 20 families with counseling questions.
