State Fair Community College

Advising & Resource Center (ARC)

The Advising & Resource Center (ARC) is the place where new, transfer, visiting and international students go to enroll in their first semester of classes after they have applied for admission to SFCC. Returning students who have not been enrolled in classes for more than a year also need to visit with an advisor before continuing their course work.

*Effective Oct. 1, the ARC will be replaced with the Student Success Navigator program under the Student Success and Retention office. Trained navigators, in conjunction with faculty and other staff, will begin working with new and current students grouped according to the programs in which they are enrolled. This initiative ensures that each SFCC student has an education plan and a personal guide to success.
