Transfer Center

As per the Los Rios District wide directive, all facilities will be closed and the district will begin 100% remote operations until further notice. While these actions are necessary for public health and safety, we understand how this transition of services may present challenges. Therefore, the Transfer Center is doing its best to facilitate alternative resources and services.

  1. Events Cancel: The entire calendar of events under the “Spring Transfer Workshop Series” will be canceled including all field trips, workshops and the UC/CSU Admit Ceremonies. In replacement, our staff will work together to centralize transfer-related resources, links and videos on our website and through important transfer email announcements.
  2. Continued Appointments through Phone/Online: We will continue to host “Transfer Center Counseling” and “University Representative appointments”, but they will be hosted over the phone and not in-person. You may book for appointment online or over the phone (916) 484-8685 under the drop menu entitled “How to see a University Representative” and “How to see a Transfer Center Counselor”. We are looking to increase the number of available appointments
  3. Email: Due to the lack of in-person services, we encourage students to email their transfer related questions to the main Transfer Center email, or our partner University Representatives. Please be detailed and specific with your inquires with name, Student ID #, current contact info (phone) and attach any related supporting documents (i.e., All college transcripts, AP/IB Scores, appeal docs, petition docs)

The Transfer Center provides the most current applications, catalogs, and resources to ensure that students have a smooth transition to four-year colleges and universities. Students may talk to community college counselors and meet with admissions advisors from California State Universities, Universities of California, and Private and/or Out-of-state Universities. ARC is committed to helping students become better informed so that they may plan for their future with as much knowledge and support as possible.
