Dual Enrollment: Taking Classes at the SRJC While in High School

SRHS is very fortunate that they happen to be located right next door to a nationally renowned Community College, Santa Rosa Junior College. Many students are able to access SRJC while they are still attending high school.  These students are referred to as Dual Enrollment Students. Dual Enrollment Students DO NOT have to pay any tuition while taking courses at SRJC (books and fees are not included in waiver). 

If a student wants to take a JC course, they should start by looking at the online SRJC course catalog: Once a course of interest is found, please check to make sure the course does not have a prerequisite that you need to fulfill to be eligible to take the class. Dual enrollment students planning on taking English at the JC MUST complete a guided self-placement test before registering for courses. The guided self-placement is available online and can be accomplished at home at the students’ own pace. You can receive guidance on choosing SRJC classes from your school counselor and Ms. Batchelder in the College and Career Center. The SRJC high school liaison for SRHS is Colleen Olmstead and you can also contact her with any questions of if you need assistance with anything related to the SRJC: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Applying to the SRJC

Prior to applying to the SRJC, it is highly recommended that seniors take COUN 270 at the SRJC. COUN 270 is a 9 hour introduction to college course which helps students learn about the SRJC and plan their coursework. It also allows for students to have priority registration when signing up for JC classes which means that they can sign up for classes before other students. This is important as classes at the JC fill up quickly.
