American River College

American River College (ARC) is a community college located in Sacramento, California. The college's campus is set on 153 acres in northern Sacramento Country, on the old Cameron Ranch.

ARC is one of the largest community colleges in California, with a student body of over 35,000 students. The college publishes its own literary journal, called the American River Review, and has done so since 1984. This journal has received national recognition and won a variety of awards, including Gold Crowns from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and the National Pacemaker Award from the Associated Collegiate Press.

The college primarily serves residents of the greater Sacramento area. Many of these students take general education and lower division courses, in preparation for transfer to a four-year institution such as the University of California, Davis and California State University, Sacramento. ARC ranks #1 in terms of students transferred to UC Davis and CSU Sacramento. In addition to these transfer programs, ARC also offers numerous programs for vocational training, continuing education, and personal enrichment. Many of the college's course are available online, or as hybrid or web-enhanced courses.

American River College offers several distance learning courses and classes that can be completed entirely online. Online education at American River College is designed for working adults and aspiring professionals who want to earn a college degree without attending campus.
