6.2.3) Sacramento Junior Colleges (JCs).

Junior colleges (JCs) are the most diverse and useful institutions in
higher education, IMHO. Entrance requirements allow virtually any
high school graduate or anyone else over the age of 18 to attend. But
once someone is admitted, course prerequisites and placement exams at
JCs distinguish many levels of scholastic aptitude and accomplishment.
JCs serve many purposes. For many professionals, JCs are fora
for continuing education; for others, JCs are places where they can
obtain marketable job skills. But the primary purpose for which JCs
were designed was as transitionary institutions for those who
eventually wanted to attend a four year university. Regardless of
your educational goals, a JC is the best place to start looking for
educational resources. There are three JCs in Sacramento's Los Rios
Community College District (<gopher://gopher.losrios.cc.ca.us:70/ >):
