Academics

At Los Rios, you pick a goal and we will help you reach it.

Student Success is Our Focus

The Los Rios colleges are all about student success. Our students come to us from all kinds of backgrounds and at different stages in their lives. Our job is simple: help them achieve their academic goals.

Guided Pathways

All four colleges in Los Rios are implementing Guided Pathways – a way to keep students at the center of everything we do.

Guided Pathways is about four fundamental goals for students, and all of the programs and supports at our colleges are built to support these goals.

  1. Simplify the process to get into our colleges
  2. Make it easier to identify an academic goal
  3. Make sure everyone has the help they need along the way
  4. Make sure students leave our colleges with the skills and credentials necessary to start – or continue – the career of their dreams
