Tuition & Financial Aid:
I am not eligible for financial aid, but I was given free tuition my first year anyways, I just had to sign up for a certain waiver. It doesn't say that they give first years free tuition, but it does anyway.

The library is great, it has multiple stories of books, and a sort of indoor/outdoor patio area that's really nice sit in when the weather is good. Students don't live here, but it's still pretty nice to eat at and hang out between classes. There are lots of trees to sit under, and a couple little places to get food or coffee. Tad expensive, but it's really good for on-campus food.

There is a good mix of people who have full-time jobs and families, and people who are just out of high school looking to transfer. A few of these younger students seem no different than when in high school: immature, loud, rude, and not really caring to be there. Most everyone is there to learn though, which is good, but they definitely know how to socialize, make friends, and do things outside of school.

There are a TON of resources available to students. We have a learning resource center that offers tutoring in almost every subject for free, a center for disabled students, great library staff, accessible health center. It's all very accessible and excellent quality.

The ASL teachers are generally very friendly, and students get to know them on a first name basis. It is hard to get into classes at times because the program is so specialized, and there aren't many sessions available. ASL students are required to visit the lab intermittently throughout the semester to watch DVDs or videotape themselves. The workload is expected for learning a foreign language.

American River college is a community college, so most of the courses are GE. The teachers are excellent, and the atmosphere is OK. They offer plenty of prerequisites for most majors. Mine is ASL linguistics, and although they only offer one ASL linguistics course, their general language department is great.

The online course I took was the only one available in psychology during the summer I wanted to take the course. I enjoyed taking the class because since there was a screen in front of me and not a teacher or the whole classroom I felt more comfortable with opening up and giving as much input as I could. And it helped tremendously that I could take my time to answer questions and write it out before I gave an input.

I haven't started my major requirements yet because I just changed my major.

Because I had DSPS I had an easier time getting the classes I needed for the next semester and found it more flexible to pick a number of courses before registration date and then to drop whatever I found unnecessary.

I am pleased with all but the career center which seems to be the exception to the high standards and effective resources on campus. Students are held to a higher standard than other like schools which is in line with upper division university requirements and standards better preparing us for success and an easy transition after transferring
College Student 2012-11-17T01:06:54Z
The career center seems to have staff that are not as knowledgeable and up to date as other service departments. They do not seem to be as well informed as they should be and generally give us generic answers and resources that are over saturated and do not seem to produce any results. For example I inquired about internship opportunities as well as part time job opportunities twice. both times i was refereed only to a resume writing seminar. not helpful nor did it address my questions or needs

D2L always has issues. It has consistently been frustrating professors and students alike. there are always issues causing professors to have to delay assignments. This is a big deal and not acceptable especially when you are in an 8 week class. We would all be grateful and more successful if this issue were addressed. Besides it simply should perform as it was designed and it does not. I am reluctant to take any online classes I once had planned to.Computers and printing services are readily available to all students. Wireless access is provided and has been very reliable. I have never experienced any connectivity issues. This is a tremendous resource as some of my courses require me to login online to complete homework assignments. I can do this between classes making better use of my time.

All resources on campus are strong. Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Financial aide office even automatically screens and enrolls when you become eligible for the Cal Grant automatically.

The academic experience has been okay, still learning new things everyday.

It is a good school with lots of opportunity, but still has some cleaning up to do.

No matter how much I tried to study, I can never be a straight A student. My English are low and I am not successful in school.

Knowing your way around before submerging in this college is key to not wasting your time. Counselors will tell you classes to take that some will or wont transfer, and since its a shot in the dark which ones go for the major your aiming for. Researching your major first and doing your own background before seeing a counselor advisor is my best advice. Great college professors, great facilities. Yet; priorities such as a bigger class size or more classes because of funding are hindering it.

american river college allows high school students a chance to be prepared for their college courses
College Senior 2012-11-02T09:02:39Z
in my college they have a lot programs to help students manage their work every course they take, also for preparing high school students to take college courses

the classes are filled with a variety of people with different ethic backgrounds ;that are all pursuing their own goals for life.

The professors are mostly helpful and accessible with a few exceptions. The curriculum is highly interesting. Registration is typically difficult due to limited classes. The ASL interpreting program, and the cooking programs are very very good.

Most teachers are flexible and are very knowledgeable about their field. When there is an issue, more than 90% I can get another person to fix (whether that requires going above their head or not). Due to budget cuts, classes are a little scarce but overall a great experience.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
