International Student Admission

American River College welcomes students from all over the world. Students who enter the US on a non-immigrant visa are considered international students; however, there are different attendance requirements for each visa type.

American River College is approved by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to issue the I-20 for the F-1 visa. An international student must be enrolled in at least 12 units each semester and must maintain a C (2.0) grade point average at all times, in order to comply with F-1 visa requirements.
