CIS offers courses in 3 modalities: face to face, hybrid and online courses. Face to face and hybrid courses are offered days and evenings at the SCC main campus, located at 3835 Freeport Boulevard (across from Land Park) and at the West Sacramento Outreach Center. We also offer online courses, giving students access to flexibility in their schedule with Distance Education courses.
