Fresh Start logoThe Fresh Start Program supports students who fall into probation or dismissal status. The goal of Fresh Start is to ensure that all students who have experienced academic and or personal setbacks receive meaningful support.

The Fresh Start Program offers intentional counseling, case management, and educational resources while helping students develop success strategies to get back on track and return to good standing.

As a Panther, we want to ensure that you receive our support, feel more confident, motivated to reach your educational, career, and life goals while building connections at Sacramento City College.

Fresh Start supports students who are placed on Probation 1, Probation 2, or Dismissal status.

Please note that probation or dismissal holds affect enrollment throughout the district, until the hold is addressed.
