Wednesday, April 27 has been designated Denim Day to raise awareness and support for survivors of sexual violence. 

Wear denim Wednesday to show support to survivors of sexual assault. Join WEAVE at the ARC main campus in front of the library from 1:00 to 3:00 pm to write supportive messages to survivors and learn about WEAVE resources.

Revision to Enrollment Process

Students who take in-person classes or access on-campus services must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or have an approved exemption on file. As part of our efforts to help reduce barriers for students to enroll in our colleges, Los Rios has revised the enrollment process for in-person classes to allow all students to enroll in in-person classes and provide proof of vaccination (or an approved exemption) prior to the start of classes. This change will take effect starting in Summer 2022, and any student who is not cleared two weeks before the start of the term will be dropped from their in-person classes.


This change will help more students get the classes they need and make progress on their academic goals, while still ensuring that our campuses are healthy and safe for all students, faculty, and staff.


If you are a student who wants to take an in-person class, make sure to act now and share your vaccination/exemption information in eServices. You will be dropped from your in-person summer class(es) if you don’t provide proof by Monday, May 23. For fall classes, you must provide proof by Monday, August 8 to avoid being dropped. Both of these dates are two weeks prior to the start of the semester.
