Overall Experience: Overall experience- even though it was short term was great. There was no miss-communications or issues I came across. The application and enrollment was an easy process. I felt I had efficient resources when I needed help. Staff and student were friendly and welcoming. My short time spent at the school was nice and pleasant. I have had no issues or problems.

Overall Experience: I attended American River College for a semester in 2008 in their dance program. It was fun and people were friendly. School parking never seemed to be an issue and traffic was reasonable. It was overall a great experience and I would recommend this college to anyone.

4 College Student

Academic Experience: My teachers are all very intelligent and want to make sure you know the coursework. They provide only a very reasonable amount of work and keep the lectures interesting.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: While the financial aid process is slow and I have been given misinformation by the staff multiple times, the teachers are very understanding, interesting and helpful.

Academic Flexibility: My second semester at ARC, I had dropped a class that contained quite a number of units because the class was to difficult for me. I tried to fulfill those units with other classes, but failed to find any open or available. The one thing I strongly dislike about this college is that so many people enroll and I always get put on the waitlist for at least one class. I know I'm not the only student to experience this which means that more can relate when I claim that not being accepted into a class can really detriment a student's goal for how long they wish to remain at ARC. This is because some classes have prerequisites and delaying one class delays attending the intended class for a student's major. This is the reason I rate 3 out of 5 for academic flexibility.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I have encountered amazing professors so far. Whether the class was big or small in numbers, I felt like it was easy to talk to each professor if I needed help with anything. I have liked most professor's teaching styles and it was easy to ace the ones I didn't like as well. American River College has really great professors on campus, but the only reason I found them was through ratemyprofessor.com. It's a really helpful website that gives the student a "pre"-first impression of the professor.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I like the school, but not the waitlist.

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: I've had very positive experiences with planning courses and talking to counselors.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My experience at American River college so far has been smooth. I have a lot of programs, so it was hard trying to keep track and schedule everything. Other than that, I have had an excellent experience in college.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: The career center is a great place for students to go for information. It has helped me a lot in trying to find jobs in the area that will either help me toward my major or will help so I can continue paying for my college education

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had amazing professors. They all have taught me so much and were very respectful. There are many courses offered at American River College, but this is my first year and haven't taken many courses. Although the ones I have taken have taught me a lot. The classes are about an average of 30 people. Overall, my classes and professors have been very helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I value a degree from American River College because it is a great college to be at for my major in nursing. It will help me transfer to a University.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at school so far has been amazing! I've had a lot of financial struggles in college, but I have had a lot of help from programs there. The people are very diverse and very willing to help. If I could do it all over, I wouldn't do anything differently. I am extremely happy in my choice of which school I would attend and have met a lot of friendly people.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had decent instructors, great instructors and horrible instructors.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: My general education classes have been very accessible with online, evening, weekend, multiple day, and single day classes. My degree specific classes have been difficult to schedule with limited number of courses offered and time frames. I have had to make changes in my work schedule and personal life, but it is reasonable to get the education I signed up and paid for.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I have taken a number of classes online. My opinion is scattered. Most of my classes have been great. I do my work and turn it in and my professor answers my emails/questions speedily. Some of my classes online have felt like the instructor was trying to hold my hand an guide me every step of the way, which felt like I was being smothered.
