What Students Are Saying

2.90 Average Rating
Give it a shot! It's a great place to find yourself if you're not sure where you want to be yet (like me!).
Benjamin from Folsom, CA
Learn about all of the programs that are there are to help you further your education. BOG fee waiver, financial aid, CalWorks, EOPS, DSPS are are there to help you. Don't be afraid to ask for anything, the staff are wonderful and will work with you through everything. See a counselor regularly because they really keep you on track!
Tonya from Placerville, CA
I would set up an appointment with a counselor as soon as possible. They will be able to help set up short term and long term goals for your community college experience. I you are interested in transferring to a 4- year college I recommend that you see a counselor even bore you sign up for classes.
Micah from Folsom, CA
At the bare minimum, do all of your work and show up every day. You absolutely must do this, because if you screw up your life due to not caring - it's on you.
Dane from Orangevale, CA
Make sure to leave with enough time to get to school and get parked. Make sure you use all the resources that the school has to offer. Relax and enjoy college.
JESSICA from FOLSOM, CA
The library isn't open on weekends but there are multiple Starbucks and Peets cafe's around the area. They are great locations for study groups!
Nichole from Rancho Cordova, CA
If you don't have a lot of financial options, or aren't quite ready to attend a four year univeristy, this is a great option. You can get your general education out of the way for a fraction of the cost at four year schools, and the college has transfer agreements with many colleges in the area. Very transfer oriented for a community college, and the teachers expect students to work hard and learn. This will prepare you for a four year college without hurting your wallet. If you want to be lazy, this isn't a college for you, but if you want to complete your GE for as little money and as quickly as possible, you will do well here.
Melissa from Folsom, CA
One thing that I would urge prospective students to do is to watch deadlines like a hawk and do everything as early as possible. With the state budget being late and education being a lower priority than it should be, competition for a seat in any class is tough. So if you have even the slightest notion that you are going to attend this campus, get done with your assessment test early and speak with a counselor as soon as possible.
Saki from Folsom, CA
Take time to talk to a counselor and set up an academic plan! If you plan your classes ahead of time, enrollment dates won't be so painful. Have several back up schedules in place to protect yourself from being unable to find open classes.
Kaylan from Folsom, CA
Future students, don't expect community college to be any easier than a university. The classroom sizes are smaller, but you still need to work for your grade.
