Resources to Finish the Semester Strong
Finals and final projects are just around the corner and during this time of increased stress, it might be tempting to use a service that sells completed assignments, papers, or projects. Don’t do it! Please remember that it is considered plagiarism and cheating - a violation of your student rights and responsibilities.
We are ready to help you finish up the semester strong! Take advantage of campus resources such as tutoring, the writing centers, and the library. Find the resource that is right for you and make an appointment today!
Spring Enrollment Starts Soon

Priority registration for the Spring 2022 semester starts next Monday, November 22. An extensive selection of online and on-campus general education, university transfer, career education, and personal enrichment courses are available. View class schedule. The spring semester runs from January 15 through May 18. Other shorter-term classes begin throughout the semester. You should have received your enrollment appointment day and time. You can register for classes anytime thereafter via eServices.
No Spring 2022 Parking Permits

To help reduce the barriers for students who need to access district and college facilities (including in-person classes or student support services), semester and daily parking permits will not be sold during the Spring 2022 semester. While you will not be ticketed for a lack of permit, students and employees will be required to park in designated student or staff parking spaces. Los Rios Police will enforce violations in red zones and other restricted areas, metered or timed parking, disabled parking, and violations that impede traffic or block access.
