As the fall semester begins, the following provides some tips for utilizing some of the services on campus.

One of the most important services to many students is financial aid.

“Getting money for books lets me afford to go here,” said Ashley Clark, business administration major.

The financial aid office, located in RHN167, can answer questions as well as provide the necessary forms.

“They can have assistance in filling out their financial aid application, and they can also get copies of the paperwork if they need those to turn in. We occasionally hold the workshops for the SAP [satisfactory academic progress] appeals,” said Alex Sylvia, a temporary financial aid clerk.

The main financial aid office is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and is closed Friday. Help is also available in the Registration/Financial Aid Lab in BUS153 Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and document drop-off only on Friday from 8 a.m. to  4 p.m.

Tutoring is free to all City College students and, as outlined on the Tutoring Center website, will be provided by trained peers in subjects such as math, English, business, and computer information science.

Students needing help with classes can request a tutor from the Learning Skills and Tutoring Center located in LRC144.

According to the website, weekly scheduled appointments will be made if a qualified tutor is available. Scheduled sessions are generally 50 minutes, and students can receive one hour of tutoring per week per subject.

There is no current limit on walk-in sessions, which are available based on volume. The Tutoring Center website states that all students receiving tutoring services must enroll in Human Services 1000 at no additional cost .

Maybe legislation will someday catch up with technology and injustices. The Tutoring Center is open Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The counseling office is probably the best place to look at if you’re not sure what you want to do or what you should be doing,” said Andrew Braden, a new student yet to declare a major.

Students who want to change their current direction, transfer to a new school, or make sure they are currently on the correct track to completing their programs can contact the Counseling Center located in RHN147.

The counseling office website states that the office accepts walk-ins until the allotted time slots are full. Appointments may be scheduled if the issue requires more time to address adequately.

The office provides services beyond academic needs, such as career planning, personal counseling and even crisis intervention.

Appointments can be scheduled directly at the Counseling Center or by calling (916) 558-2204. The center is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Child Development Center offers early care and education for income-eligible students who have children ages 3-5. The website states that children are admitted to the center once administration has determined that the family meets eligibility requirements and that the center can cater to the child’s individual needs.

The process takes a few weeks for the child to be approved, unless a parent can bring in forms from CPU (the Child Psychiatry Unit).

“We are not certified to take in any children without notice, unless it is a special needs case,” said Lisa Garcia, supervisor of the Child Development Center.

A registration packet can be picked up at the Child Development Center Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The office can be reached at 916-558-2542.
