Continuing Education

The College serves the needs and interests of both the part-time and full-time students by providing a wide range of college credit and noncredit courses, including programs during the day and evening hours and on weekends. In addition to the main body of classes offered at the Santa Rosa Campus, the College also conducts classes at the Petaluma Campus, Cloverdale, Forestville, Healdsburg, Point Arena, Rohnert Park, Windsor, and other areas within the District, as needed. 

Admission to off-campus courses is governed by the same requirements as admission to the on-campus courses.

High school students may enroll in a limited number of classes with the permission of their high school principals.

A full range of college credit courses are offered during the evening hours, allowing a student to fulfill all of the requirements for the associate’s degree, a variety of Career Technical Education certificates, and the requirements for transfer to a four-year college or university.

The College offers programs in Career Technical Education areas designed to upgrade employee skills. These areas include: Administration of Justice/Public Safety, Agriculture/Natural Resources, Applied Technology, Apprentice Education, Business Administration, Child Development, Computer Studies, Electronics, Health Sciences, and Industrial and Trade Technology. Refresher courses in various Career Technical Education areas are offered as needed.
