Selecting a program
Please note that some programs or courses require prerequisites (courses that must be completed prior to enrolling in another course). Information about the number of semesters or time need to complete certificates and degrees does not include time associated with completion of prerequisites.
SRJC offers a broad array of occupational certificate programs that provide a course of study preparing students directly for employment or self-employment upon completion of the program. We offer two types of certificates:
Most certificate programs are developed through the collaboration of SRJC faculty and industry leaders and employers who sit on Advisory Committees for the occupational disciplines. There are two types of certificates recognized by the College: Certificates of Achievement and Skills Certificates.
For many individuals, an associate degree provides just the level of training they need to ensure they are prepared for their new career. The associate degree usually includes both the technical courses required for a Certificate of Achievement, plus additional courses to fulfill the general education degree requirements.
The Associate in Arts and Associate in Science Degrees can be earned at Santa Rosa Junior College. Requirements for graduation with an Associate Degree are prescribed by the California Community College System and the Board of Trustees of Santa Rosa Junior College. Many SRJC departments offer both certificates and associate degrees. See the About Associate Degrees page.
Being a transfer student means that you are beginning your bachelor's degree right here at Santa Rosa Junior College. Like other community colleges, SRJC offers "lower division" (freshman and sophomore) General Education and major preparation courses equivalent to those at a university. After you transfer, you will complete your "upper division" (junior and senior) coursework and graduate from the university. See the Pepare for Transfer page.
The college’s Career and Employment Center has an excellent selection of materials to help students investigate careers and take workshops focused on job skills and career selection. The center also has a student employment office that provides assistance to students seeking work.
