Tuition & Financial Aid:
I don't understand why for returning students the process has to be so difficult. I can understand brand new students because they have'nt proven themselves. I find it fustrating for someone like me, going on my fourth year that I should still be having difficulties with recieving my financial aid.

Happy Staff – One thing I noticed in particular about this campus is how happy the proffesors are. This is new to me. Coming from Sacramento City College the professors there were mostly unhappy. This has been a refreshing change for me.

Highly Rated – I am very impressed with the computer labs here at American River College. I am always able to get a computer whenever I need one.

Highly Rated – American River College's Campus Resourses Department is so far very well equipt. This is my first year here, I transferred from Sacramento City College. It seems to be any resousre you need counseling, business or student services has its own deptartment. This makes it very easy for me to get the resourses I need.

In the Process of Devolping – American River is in the middle of upgrading. We have about almost everything, but a little more doesn't hurt.

I don't have a problem with the network. I just wish sometimes American River has their E services open later than 11pm.
E services is a place where you can view your transcript, grades, drop/register for classes.

The American Marketing Association is a great opportunity to meet people that have the same goals as you do. You make friends and find real opportunity locally.

Gender, Ethnic, Social Class, and Age Diversity – The majority of the student body appears to be female with a diverse ethnic mix, though still noticably European-American. There are a wide veritity of nationalities (e.g. Vietnamese, Hindu, Irani, Saudi, Afgani, Russian, Ukranian, etc.) and religions (e.g. Christian, Islamic, Buddist, Scientologist, etc.). I see a span of working poor to upper middle class as well. These can only be discerned by reading between the lines though as it is not openly flaunted.

Chemical Dependency/Human Services Major – The course work is fascinating and involved from the perspective of truely reaching the addict/alcoholic. I have also grown personally as I have been made aware of who I am and how I can help others.

Transition from High School or Work to Higher Pathways – Especially rated for those who wish to transition from high school or work into higher education or better career paths. This college offers many courses and degrees that lead to inproved opportunites. Since the professors all have experience in their fields they can help direct and involve each student in a realistic future.

Board of Governor's Waiver Is Helpful – Although I didn't qualify for financial aid, the BOG waiver did help me get through college. It saved me hundreds of dollars in registration fees. People are also notified quickly whether they've been qualified for the waiver.

The Abundance of Classes Is Amazing – There are over 1000 professors at American River College. Most classes are offered at all times of the day, which makes it very convenient for working individuals to continue going to school. The classes here also transfer to many of the UCs and CSUs.

Printing Is Important – Printing in our library is 10 cents per page. It's nice when people have chemistry, because people can print free chemistry-related items in the chemistry lab. I wish we had a physics lab though. 10 cents per page can get pretty expensive by the end of the year.

The MESA Program – The MESA program on campus brings together similar people of the college. The criteria they set for new members helps with this. In addition to studying, and receiving help from professors, bond activities are also shared among members when the time is right.

Facilities Are Getting Renewed – Although American River College is an older campus, improvements are always being made. There is currently a new cafeteria being constructed on campus. A new parking structure is even being developed.

Brought Together by a Common Major – My engineering classes are full of all types of people. Everyone is always able to start a conversation with a fellow classmate over how a test went, and study groups are almost always formed amongst the most diverse of people. Classes are generally composed of a friendly bunch.

The career service helps the students out and always answers the question. They get the job done, which helps us a lot!

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I think that going to a community college is a great way to earn a good education while saving money, however, sometimes to be enrolled in the classes can be a hassle. I think around the time that classes start, registering for the class can be a headache, especially when the class is constantly packed.

Not "American" River College Anymore – ive been going there for 3 years, and for 3 years it has gotten worse and worse to the point people call ARC "All Russians College" they refuse to speak english and pretend not to know what you need, unless you speak russian and have a salvage title car, you will never get anywhere, al but one of them is on welfare but gets to work in our tool room, yet normal english speaking white guys are struggling to find work. its horrible. the only reason ARC passes is because of the teachers.

Math 103 – I thought that I would be able to take an online math class, because I had it before and failed because I was missing some homework assignments. I was wrong I need to have a lecture class, because of time management as well.

Im going to a 2 year college so it isn't expensive. I have BOGW and financial aid so everything is covered for my tuition. The financial aid people will always help you tell you your status.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
