3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Some teachers want you to be at their office hours and if you cant make it, they look at you as if you are not taking your classes seriously. But what some teachers do not understand is that we have our lives to live and it is not revolved around them. However, I have had teachers that were really friendly and wanted you to succeed and if you couldnt get to their office hours that was a no problem.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I will be extremely sorry to leave the Santa Rosa Junior College. I have learned a great deal from their teachers. I like the diversity on campus and find that a range of ages and backgrounds brings on insightful commentary that I think will be harder to come by on a campus with a younger student body. I think they also have a wealth of student services here that I am forever discovering. There is always a librarian or helper in one of the labs that has the time ans patients to work with me on whatever it is I need help with.

    Most Flexible Class Schedules

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

If you see a counselor before the semester begins, you'll find that SRJC has a lot of scheduling options. Most classes have a range of available sections, which makes them flexible and adaptable to many different lifestyles. Generally, the longer you've been at SRJC, the easier it is. Scheduling order is determined by the number of units you've already taken; students with more units get priority when choosing classes.

The College makes many classes available in an array of times so that students can finish their required classes in minimal time. Many students who work part- or full-time find SRJC's night and weekend classes very convenient. The only struggle that students run in to is how fast classes get filled. Since the JC offers classes to forty thousand students per semester, it is hard to give everyone the classes of their choice.

Academic/Testing Requirements
Applying to SRJC is as easy as applying to any other community college. They do not have a minimum requirement to enter the school because they believe in second chances. You can test into UC transferable classes by passing the placement tests in math, English, and science.
Transferring Credits In & Out
Transferring credits to another college from SRJC, or vice versa, is as simple as filling out a form. Upon request, the school sends mid-term reports and final transcripts to any school specified.
Typical Session Length
Santa Rosa Junior College does its best to offer classes that fit into a busy schedule. The College has semester-long classes that last sixteen weeks, and it has eight-week-long classes for students who can't afford to spend time in class for long. Students love the options offered here.
Class Style & Structure
Classes at SRJC all differ, mainly because teachers all have their own way of running a lecture. What most classes have in common is that there are usually 25-30 students per class unless it is held in a lecture hall, which holds up 150 students.
Course Registration Process
Course registration is rather difficult if the student does not have top priority. Before registration time, counselors hold appointments where students can get top priority on class registration. It is best to see a counselor every semester for priority 1A.
