Academic Experience: I haven't taken classes yet for my major but i feel like it is going to be a lot of fun. The Junior college goes to other colleges and ask what they would like the JC student s to have finished before the want to transfer. Which is really helpful and reliable.

Class Sizes
Class sizes at SRJC depend on the popularity of the course. Topics that interest many students lead to large classes held in the auditorium. Niche topics more specific to majors are usually smaller. Either way, class sizes are definitely not a problem. Every student gets the feeling that they are learning one-on-one.
Student/Professor Relationships
Most professors at SRJC are interested in getting to know their students. At the beginning of each semester, professors will hand out fact sheets. Students use these fact sheets to identify areas they struggle with, and to help their professors get to know them better.
Testing & Grading Procedures
Grading at Santa Rosa Junior College is based on how well a student does throughout the semester. Typically, the highest percentage of the grade comes from the final project or test, but some teachers at SRJC do not follow that route and make all the tests equal. Tests usually begin one month into the semester.
Typical Lecture - Single Day
A typical class day can include role call, lecture, and Q&A time.
Typical Course - Start to Finish
Students usually have a ninety minute lecture twice a week, but this can change depending on the course. Normally, a student will need to study for three hours for each lecture class, which makes it six hours total per course per week. Projects and research papers tend to fall towards the end of the semester. This is the outline of most classes at the junior college.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
Many students wish they knew more about scholarship and financial aid applications before coming to school. Unlike high school, the College does not provide counselors who walk students through campus and explain how everything operates.
Tips to Succeed
The biggest tip anyone on the SRJC campus can give to incoming students is to make sure to talk to counselors about classes. It is also wise for incoming students to know which College they want to transfer to, or know what they want to major in. That way, they can get on the path of transferring out right away.
