American River College, Student Success Program

American River College has received funding to provide support and assistance to low-income, first-generation, or disabled college students to ensure they remain in school and graduate. The funding is from the federal Department of Education’s Student Support Services Program. Services provided to these students include instruction in obtaining financial aid assistance, basic study skills, tutorial services, career guidance, personal counseling, and mentoring. The grant will ensure that the college can provide new, innovative success-oriented services that might not otherwise be available.
