About American River College

American River College's beautiful 153-acre main campus is in the suburbs of Sacramento, California, and welcomes approximately 32,000 students each spring and fall, making ARC one of the largest higher education institutions in California. Our vision is to transform the future of students and our community through inclusive, equitable education. We offer a large selection of academic and career-oriented associate degrees, certificates, and programs designed to prepare students to enter the workforce or transfer to a university. Many of our students transfer to local four-year universities including California State University, Sacramento and the University of California, Davis. In fact, American River College transfers more students to Sac State and UC Davis than any other community college in California.
