Why Riverside Community College District

California community colleges afford international students a great entry point into American universities. Riverside Community College District offers international students the opportunity for an easier transition to US-style academics as well as lower-tuition options than University of California and Cal State University systems. Attending a California community college also offers international students transfer opportunities to such universities as UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego and other top-notch institutions. Community colleges also offer international students an opportunity to improve English-language skills and the chance to experience different majors. Choosing courses is a crucial part of adjusting to US college life.
