Students can purchase school gear, scantrons and textbooks among other class necessities in the first floor of the building. They are open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m..
The Financial Aid office has been moved from the Village to the second floor of the JSC. Students have a computer available to submit their financial aid application or California Dream Act. To get personalized help from a financial aid expert, students can walk in on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m..
