Yolo County

On July 1, 2014, we became the University of California Capitol Corridor Multi-county Partnership, serving Sacramento, Solano, and Yolo Counties!

This allows us to serve the capitol corridor with greater efficiency and access to more advisors and programs.

Portions of our website will be changing and we appreciate your patience during this transition.
