Student FYI: Week of April 15 through 26


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


Great news for those still in need of financial aid! The deadline to apply for priority assistance through FAFSA or CADAA has been extended to May 2, 2024.  Even with the deadline being extended, aid is granted on a first-come, first-served basis for funds directly distributed by Los Rios, so it’s crucial to apply as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the process, the financial aid office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and ready to assist you.


Planning for the 2024 fall semester? The schedules and your priority registration date are now available on your eServices account. If you need guidance on choosing classes, the counseling and transfer team at Rodda Hall North, RHN 147, is always there to help you navigate your college journey. You can schedule a counseling appointment here.


Beep, beep! Beginning Monday, April 15, students can expect more traffic on their way to campus due to road closures. The eastbound and right-hand turns onto Broadway at Riverside Boulevard and Land Park Drive will be closed for three to four weeks. During this time, X Street is the recommended detour. For more information on the project impacting your commute to school, check out this link.


Get ready to make your voice heard! City College student leadership elections are just around the corner. This is your chance to meet and learn about those running for various positions. A candidate forum will be held on April 18 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the Student Center. Your vote matters, and you can cast it on April 23 or 24 between 8 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. by logging on to your eServices account. Don’t miss this opportunity to shape the City College community.
