Associate Degrees/Majors:

The major is one of several requirements students need to fulfill in order to be awarded the Associate Degree, the highest level of academic achievement recognized by Santa Rosa Junior College. Please note that all of the following requirements must be met in order for the degree to be conferred:

For all students admitted for the Fall 2009 term or any term thereafter, a grade of "C" or better, or "P" if the course is taken on a pass/no pass basis, is required for each course applied toward the major.

Majors are intended to provide the student with a foundation for transfer to a 4-year institution, training for an occupational field, or sufficient depth in a field of knowledge to contribute to a lifelong interest. Transfer requirements differ between 4-year institutions so students wishing to transfer are advised should work with a counselor to plan their lower division, transfer preparation, work. If we do not offer a major in a particular field of study, a student may still be able to prepare for transfer by taking the appropriate lower division courses. Please discuss such preparation, as well as any questions about an approved major, with a counselor.
