Feather River College
Rising Scholars/Incarcerated Student Program

The Incarcerated Student Program, as part of the California Community College Rising Scholars Network, provides justice-involved students, who are currently incarcerated, the opportunity to complete an AA-T in Sociology, an AA in Liberal Arts: Liberal Arts and Humanities, or a certificate of specialization in Small Business Management. The program emphasizes skills essential for employment and reintegration into society: communication, critical thinking, and lifelong learning habits. ISP is part of FRC's commitment to the California Community College mission and the Vision for Success. 

Courses are conducted through correspondence format, offering students rich material, including the instructor's "voice" in the courses, and personalized feedback on assignments. ISP course content is designed to align with the approved course outlines of record, as do all courses offered by Feather River College.

When the ISP program was established in 2007, there were 65 students. Now over 600 students across the state are part of this program.
