​C.A.R.R. Program

Thanks for showing interest in the C.A.R.R. (Creative Activity Retention Response) program.  This program was designed to address the academic needs of the student population that are served here at San Jose City College.  The academic progress of each student-athlete is care­fully monitored by the C.A.R.R Program, with the goal of assisting students in remaining eligible, as well as  keeping them on track with their two year Student Educational Plan.  The program is currently housed in the Learning Resource Center which affords the students easy access to the various academic services provided by the college, such as the Reading/ Writing, or Tutorial Center. 


The C.A.R.R Program provides mandatory study hall. Study hall is intended to maximize student-athlete study time by providing a monitored environment. It is not meant to be a replacement for attending class. Study hall is located in the Learning Resource Center. Study Hall attendance will be determined by the each team’s individual Head Coach and the C.A.R.R Pro­gram Athletic Academic Advising Specialist. Daily attendance is reported to each team’s head coach, athletic advisor, and athletic administrators. The student-athlete is responsible for signing up for Study Hall with the C.A.R.R Program Athletic Academic Advising Specialist prior to the first day of study hall each  semester.


The academic progress of each student-athlete is care­fully monitored by the C.A.R.R Program. The C.A.R.R Program Athletic Academic Advising Specialist works closely with counselors, instructors, coaches, athletic administrator and student-athletes to make sure that student- athletes are making progress toward a degree or transfer program. Prior to the first day of athletic competition each student-athlete is required to have a two-year education plan on file in order to participate.  GRADUATING IN TWO YEARS Maximize the number of academic -units you are en­rolled in each semester. Completing 12 units each semes­ter will not guarantee eligibility or progress toward a degree. Complete remedial and /or non-college coursework during your first tear at SJCC. Plan on being enrolled in school year round. This means being enrolled for the fall se­mester, spring semester, summer session and inter­session. Only take classes that count toward a degree program. Once you have completed your general edu­cation requirements enroll in classes that are prereq­uisites for your intended major. Confer with C.A.R.R Program Athletic Academic Advising Specialist to create your two –year education plan and make sure you’re staying on track.
