Why Sacramento City College?

Outstanding faculty

Sacramento City College employs the best and brightest faculty to help you prepare for what you need to know tomorrow, today. Many four-year colleges and universities hire teaching assistants to instruct introductory courses during the first two years. At SCC, classes are taught by professors with advanced degrees and experience in their teaching fields.


Guaranteed Transfer

Choose from a huge selection of general education and major-specific transfer courses, from English to math, from history to chemistry, from psychology to music. Most of SCC's general education classes and courses in academic subjects are transferable. The college catalog has a complete list.

You are guaranteed transfer admission to many California universities, including campuses of the University of California, California State University, University of the Pacific, and even out-of-state universities, upon meeting specific eligibility requirements. Community college transfer students get first priority when applying to a UC campus. And research shows that SCC transfer students perform as well as or better than students who entered universities as freshmen.


Tremendous Savings

You can fulfill the same lower division requirements at SCC, CSU, UCD, or UOP. It's your money. You decide.
