Students dual enrolled in high school must file the Dual Enrollment Program Request and an Application for Admission. Transfer students and international students are encouraged to apply, and special services are available to applicants with special needs through multiple services, such as Counseling Services, Disability Resources, Enabling Services, Extended Opportunity Program and Services (EOPS), Financial Aid, Adult Reentry & New Student Programs, and Veteran Services.

The Sonoma County Junior College District, in compliance with State Regulation, Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, or handicap in any of its policies, procedures, or practices; nor does the District, in compliance with the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1975, discriminate against any employees or applicants for employment on the basis of their age. 

This nondiscrimination policy covers admission, access, and treatment in college programs and activities – including, but not limited to, academic admissions, financial aid, educational services, and athletics – and application for and treatment in college employment. In conformance with the requirements of Title II of the Educational Amendments of 1976, amending the Vocational Education Act of 1963, the College is committed to overcoming sex discrimination and sex stereotyping in vocational education programs.

In conformance with college policy and pursuant to Education Code Section 87100, et seq., the Sonoma County Junior College District is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.

Inquiries regarding the SRJC’s equal opportunity/affirmative action policies may be directed to the District Compliance Officer, Santa Rosa Junior College or the Director of the Office for Civil Rights, Department of Health, Education and Welfare. 

Students, job applicants, and current employees may complain of any action that they believe discriminates against them on the ground of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, handicap, or age, and may contact the District Compliance Officer for further information and procedures. Students enrolled in career training education programs may complain of any sex discrimination, sex bias, or sex stereotyping to the Gender Equity Coordinator in the Human Resources Office.


An application is required for admission to SRJC. If you plan to register for courses that require significant mathematics, reading, or writing, placement by high school records, or completion of the guided self-placement activity can be very useful for you. Assessment for placement is a central part of the college orientation program.


SRJC uses a Student Identification number (SID), replacing the use of a Social Security number as the primary identifier for students.

SRJC continues to collect Social Security numbers, as they are necessary for financial aid recipients, federal tax credits, and state data reporting. The new SID number is printed on all SRJC  documents and records.


For added security, students are required to establish a Personal Identification Number (PIN) upon initial logon to their student myCubby portal.

Once a PIN has been established, students will need to provide their PIN when using Web Link or in-person enrollment services.

For security reasons, if students forget their PIN, they will need to contact the Admissions and Records Office in person on the Santa Rosa or Petaluma campuses. Please be prepared to show photo identification.


The course descriptions listed in alphabetical order in the back of the Catalog help to determine which courses meet your college objectives. Counselors and advisors help to answer questions regarding requirements for graduation, for transfer and occupational curricula, and to handle other matters affecting your educational plans.


The college academic calendar at the beginning of this Catalog lists important dates, such as deadlines for registration and withdrawing, holidays, examinations, and the first day of classes. For more information, refer to the Admissions and Records web site at
