The department also runs the Santa Rosa and Petaluma Tutorial Centers. In addition, the department provides noncredit, open-entry English and bilingual Spanish basic skills labs and classes on both campuses and the Southwest Santa Rosa Center.

The SRJC Petaluma Campus currently enrolls nearly 6,000 students in credit and non-credit courses. Each semester, approximately 350 course sections in nearly 60 disciplines are offered, including many majors and certificates as well as all of the courses necessary for transfer to UC, CSU, or to complete SRJCs general education requirements. SRJC has been offering courses in the Petaluma area for nearly 50 years. The original Petaluma Center operated primarily as an evening program until the completion in 1995 of permanent facilities on its current site, and was granted campus status by the SRJC Board of Trustees and the California Community College Chancellors Office in the spring of 1999. A second phase of new construction was completed in 2008; a third phase renovated the original campus. This project, the largest of its kind in SRJCs history, tripled the square footage of the campus. Among the new facilities are labs and classrooms, a second art studio, a 35,000 square foot library, a physical fitness center, a bookstore, student services and support areas, expanded dining space, faculty/administrative offices, and a 256-seat auditorium. The campus offers state-of-the-art technology throughout, including a wireless network, fully mediated instructional facilities, and video-conferencing capabilities. Other unique features of the campus include the Capri Creek restoration project and an accessible walking and bike trail system. A Cinema Series, Digital Media, Networking, Helpdesk, Fitness, Nutrition and Health, CISCO, and Water Resources Technology certificates are some of the program offerings unique to the campus. This beautiful campus is located 35 miles north of San Francisco.
