Value and Affordability

The Best Value in Higher Education

With the cost of college sky-rocketing around the nation and student debt piling up, there has never been a better time to pursue your academic dreams at Cosumnes River College (CRC). CRC is an affordable way to earn a degree or certificate, or save money before transferring to a four-year university.

The vast majority of our students qualify for free tuition through the Los Rios Promise, which combines local and state money to eliminate financial barriers for students. Many students qualify for additional financial supports – such as federal financial aid, scholarships, or even emergency funds when life throws a curve ball.

Cosumnes River College features new and renovated modern facilities to provide a better learning environment for our students. Learn more about the affordability of CRC, and start working towards your degree, certificate, or transfer today!
