Cosumnes River College is a comprehensive community college and is proud to serve the higher educational needs of residents in south Sacramento County, including the Elk Grove and Laguna areas. Our faculty, staff and managers are committed to academic excellence and helping you achieve your educational goals, whether they are transferring to a four-year college or university, obtaining an Associate’s degree or certificate, training to enhance employment, or building your skills in preparation for college level coursework.
Recently, the college developed several new Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT). These degrees, including Business Administration, Communication Studies, Mathematics, Psychology and Sociology, are for students wishing to transfer to a California State University with a guaranteed maximum 60-unit requirement in various majors. You’ll find more information on these degrees in this catalog.
You’ll also find information on our comprehensive student services including Assessment, Counseling, Admissions and Records, and Financial Aid. These resources provide you with the information and support you need to succeed in the educational program of your choice.
Over the past decade there have been significant changes to the campus “footprint” as part of our ongoing effort to provide a dynamic, supportive learning environment for the students and the area we serve. Our Elk Grove Center offers general education classes to students wanting a smaller campus environment. The Winn Center for Construction and Architecture has become an icon of innovation and modernity, a place for students to learn in a unique environment. The college continues to improve its facilities, ensuring that you feel comfortable while you are here taking advantage of exceptional educational opportunities.
Use this catalog as a tool to help you succeed. Consider getting involved beyond the classroom; join a student organization and take advantage of the opportunities that await you. I wish you much success as you pursue your goal and thank you for choosing Cosumnes River College!
