5. Assessment (Required)

Assessment of your skills in Mathematics, English, and/or English as a Second Language helps you achieve your goals in college by placing you into classes appropriate to your skill level.  Take your assessment test at least one week before your scheduled counseling workshop or appointment to be sure you have all of your test results available for your first semester course planning session.  For more information, visit the  Assessment Center website and refer to the Testing Schedules on the left hand side for dates/times/test.  Please note that Assessment Center Office Hours and Testing Schedules are not the same.

6. Counseling and Individual Student Educational Plan (iSEP)(Required)

After completing Orientation and Assessment, you will be required to participate in a New Student Counseling Workshop (NSCW).  During the NSCW, Sacramento City College staff will provide an overview of how to use your eServices account and Counselors will explain the counseling services and basic information regarding the planning of your academic classes towards your education goal. Counselors will make course recommendations for a one-semester education plan that fits with your educational goal(s) and your assessment results. During this initial contact with a counselor, students will develop a first semester Individual Student Educational Plan (iSEP).  All students should also plan to meet with a counselor each semester to ensure their iSEP remains up to date.  The best time to schedule these appointments are in October, March and July.  For more information, visit counseling website.

College clubs and organizations may be academic, social, athletic, political, spiritual, international, or cultural. Involvement in student organizations will assist students in taking initiative, managing time effectively, and provide opportunity for a wide range of interest. Many student organizations offer valuable networking opportunities. You may meet people in the community who are doing the same work you are preparing to do. The contacts you make through these experiences can be invaluable when you start applying for jobs.
