  • THE ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS OF THIS INFORMATION IS CRITICAL IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THE ELIGIBILITY OF YOUR APPLICATION. Staff uses this information to review your application. They will review transcripts based only on what you report here. If staff is unable to locate a course on your transcript based on what you report, your application will be considered incomplete.

    For each of the following courses, enter the following: a) the name of the college where the course was taken; b) the semester the course was taken; and c) the final grade for the course.

    Courses that you will be taking in Fall 2017 are considered "in-progress." Use the same format as above and enter "IP" for the grade. You must submit proof of enrollment for all in-progress coursework.

Required Documents

  • ONLY DOCUMENTS IN PDF FORMAT WILL BE ACCEPTED. Check your documents prior to uploading them to ensure that your name is on them, that no critical information has been cut-off, and that you have scanned them accurately. Failure to provide a complete document will render your application incomplete and ineligible for the random selection. If you need help, take your documents and a flash drive to a computer lab.

    BE SURE YOU HAVE ACCURATELY STATED THE COLLEGE WHERE YOU TOOK A CLASS AND THE SEMESTER IN WHICH YOU TOOK IT WHEN ENTERING YOUR COURSES ABOVE. Staff must be able to locate your courses based on the information you provide. Staff will not search through all transcripts looking for a course if you did not accurately identify it. Failure to locate a course on a transcript based on the information you provide will render your application incomplete and ineligible for the random selection.

    FOR COURSES TAKEN WITHIN THE LOS RIOS COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT, YOU DO NOT NEED TO SUBMIT TRANSCRIPTS. These colleges include: American River College, Cosumnes River College, Folsom Lake College, and Sacramento City College.

    FOR COURSES TAKEN OUTSIDE OF THE LOS RIOS COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT, YOU MUST SUBMIT AN UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT FROM THE SCHOOL WHERE YOU TOOK THE CLASS. If you are selected in the random selection, official transcripts must be on file with the Sacramento City College Admissions & Records Office WITHIN 21 DAYS of notification of selection. Failure to do so will result in the LOSS OF YOUR SEAT in the program. Transcript information from other colleges will be reviewed for validity and accuracy.

    FOR COURSES IN-PROGRESS DURING THE FALL 2017 SEMESTER, YOU MUST SUBMIT PROOF OF ENROLLMENT IN THE COURSE. WAIT-LISTED COURSES ARE NOT ACCEPTED.
