San Jose City College

San Jose City College launched a weekly series of articles in The Roar focusing on our degrees, certificates, and academic/student support programs. The purpose is to give prospective students a deeper understanding of what SJCC has to offer. Along with The Roar, the stories are shared across all our social media channels. So far, these are the 18 we have covered:

We have been very actively monitoring college admissions chat rooms and forums and will bring the most up-to-date information to you as we collect it - but please be reassured that the whole country is working together to ensure that our high-schoolers will have the same chance at a great education as everyone else in the past.  Although a lot of things are evolving on a daily (hourly?) basis, it is all done in a very mindful and positive fashion, and plans are coming together.

 

A Collection of COVID-19 Resources from National Educational Organizations  

 

The College and Career Center, located in Room 28, provides resources for students and parents in their explorations of post-high school opportunities. We are staffed by one full-time CUHSD employee - Mrs Nathalie Goricanec, our College and Career Specialist, and many parent volunteers and are open every day from 8:30am until 3 or 4pm (hours vary). Our volunteers assist students in locating information regarding in- and out-of-state colleges and universities, in finding SAT and ACT dates and registration information, in discovering scholarship and financial aid opportunities, and by answering questions about the college preparation and application processes. We have dozens of books available for check out including current SAT study guides and popular college guidebooks like the Insider's Guide to the Colleges, the Fiske Guide and the 379 Best Colleges among many others. We also provide resources for students who may be looking at vocational and job opportunities after high school. 

We encourage students of all grade levels and their parents to take advantage of our offerings.
