Online Orientation

Welcome to the Los Rios Community College District's Online Orientation! You may begin this online orientation the day after you receive your Los Rios student ID number. This orientation is required for all new students and will provide you with important information to help you succeed and excel as a student at the Los Rios colleges: American River, Cosumnes River, Folsom Lake and Sacramento City colleges.

The online orientation is the second of the Los Rios Steps to Success, and it will help you on your way to enrolling in one of our four colleges. During orientation, students will receive:
