There’s so much happening at City College, the Express wanted to offer a place for students and staff to get essential information in an informative and efficient way. We will compile a brief list of all the crucial news the City College community needs to know every other week.  

Fall semester is ending shortly which means it’s time to enroll in spring classes! Make sure to check for your priority registration date and time which is found in eServices. Also search through the spring 2024 class schedule to find the classes you would like to enroll in. Your priority enrollment date is the earliest you may enroll, but you may continue to do so after that date has passed. More information can be found here

With winter break coming up as our fall semester comes to an end, finals week is approaching quickly. Final exams are scheduled to begin on Friday, Dec. 8 through Thursday, Dec. 14.

The Los Rios Community College district introduced a new Identity and Access Management System called Okta. This is a required single sign-on tool that all students will use to manage their digital identity, control access to various college resources, and streamline login processes. Every student must complete a one-time Okta setup process the first time they attempt to log into most Los Rios applications. Instructions on how to register with Okta can be found for staff, and students who are smartphone users and non-smartphone users. Students will be required to sign into their services using Okta by Jan. 4 2024, but from now until then, students can pre register using this link.
