Welcome to Sacramento City College!

On behalf of the college, welcome to the Sacramento City College community, and to our newly remodeled website. We invite you to explore our site and learn about SCC’s services, programs of study, talented faculty and staff, and state-of-the-art academic, athletic and performing arts venues.

This site was designed with the user and user needs at the forefront of our online communication philosophy. We realize that the virtual SCC experience must match the real-world SCC experience, and have worked diligently to create a site that reflects the high standards of accessibility, diversity, quality education, and the aesthetic beauty of our campuses and programs. In addition to finding information about the college on our website, I invite you to “like” and “follow” us on Facebook and Twitter, where you will have access to up-to-the-minute information on breaking news, events and deadlines.

At SCC, our unwavering commitment to student success is the guiding principle and clear focus in all that we do at our institution. To that end, the college’s core values of celebrating diversity, nurturing personal growth, and inspiring academic and economic leadership are infused into everything we do to make the student experience not only successful, but one filled with personal connections, fond memories and positive experiences that will prepare our students to make meaningful contributions to our community and the world beyond it.

Celebrating diversity
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 students plan to transfer, earn a degree or certificate, or improve basic skills proficiency, you will find that SCC offers a broad array of courses and services to help students achieve their goals.

Nurturing personal growth
SCC offers programs and services to foster good study habits, responsible planning, teamwork and a myriad of other personal and academic skills. Dedicated and highly skilled faculty and staff are on duty to guide and support students in exploring their personal and educational interests, strengths and areas for growth.

Inspiring academic and economic leadership
With the passage of the Student Success Act in 2012 and deployment of the Student Success and Support Program in 2013, SCC is more keenly focused on improving and enhancing processes, resources, communications and programs to better guide and support students along their pathway to the completion of academic goals. Student success has always been the primary focus of SCC, and now more than ever we are collaborating and strengthening college systems to foster student learning, leadership and achievement.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about SCC. Whether you come to the college to pursue academic goals or to enjoy a play or a nail-biting football game, we are proud to have you as a partner and a member of the SCC community!

Kathryn E. Jeffery, PhD
