Return Process

Return borrowed equipment or materials to the college where you received it. If you are enrolled for the Spring 2021 semester and will need your borrowed Chromebook or computer, you can continue to use it through the spring semester. If you have completed your educational journey with us, please return all borrowed equipment and materials. The return process will be drive-up or walk-up - please observe the following safety protocols:

  • Please enter campus from College Oak Drive near the Stadium/Parking garage.
  • Follow signs indicating ARC PICK UP to the Portable Village.
  • Remain in your vehicle or walk up.
  • Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
  • Employees will wear gloves and masks.
  • Please be patient as we will work to serve you as quickly as possible.

Library Books and Materials

Regardless of whether you plan on returning to us in the spring, we ask you to return all library materials, with the exception of electronic devices borrowed by those who plan to return in the spring.

  • Return library materials (other than technology) to any Los Rios campus.
  • It may take a week or more before you will see the materials checked in on your library account.
  • If you cannot return materials immediately, due dates will be extended.
  • Return library laptops or hotspots if you are not returning for spring.
  • If you have a library laptop or hotspot and are enrolled for spring, you may keep the device for your academic use. Due dates will be extended accordingly.
