American River College is an academic home for all of its students, regardless of GPA and completion rate. Students on probation and dismissal status belong at ARC. The Back on Track team's mission is to help students move out of probation and dismissal with the full support of the campus community and our resources. The Back on Track Program at American River College works with students who are in probation or dismissal status to become academically successful and achieve their goals.

Back on Track program requirements are designed to:

  • Empower students to advocate for themselves, use campus resources, and proactively solve problems in a college environment
  • Invite students to reflect on their habits and choices that create academic success and the habits and choices that have not served them well academically
  • Connect students with people who will guide and support them as they complete Back on Track program and achieve their academic goals at ARC

  2. You will have a hold on your eServices account.
  3. You will have a Back on Track tile in Canvas.
