Certificates of Achievement

The Certificate of Achievement certifies that a student has completed all required courses for a major and is prepared to enter the career designated on their certificate. Certificate programs have been developed with the assistance of business and industrial advisory committees to provide vocational training for students who are not necessarily seeking a college degree. A grade of "C" or better is required for each course leading to a Certificate of Achievement. A minimum of 12 units must be completed at American River College. Students wishing to obtain a Certificate of Achievement from American River College need to obtain a Petition for Certificate from the Counseling Office and submit it to Enrollment Services by the deadline dates noted in the calendar in the class schedule.
