Policies & Procedures

Department Policies


All course fees are as advertised and must be paid at the time of registration, plus a $2 registration fee per transaction. Many multi-session courses will allow you to register after the course has commenced, but course fees will not be pro-rated for missed class meetings. Community Education does not offer scholarships or discounts.


When you register online, you can view and print your Transaction Receipt and Class Confirmation (which may also contain supplemental information, e.g. supply lists). If you register online, an email address must be provided in order for you to receive a confirmation and any supplemental information. If you do not receive a confirmation by email, you can view it through your student profile, or contact the Community Education Office.

Returned Checks

A returned check does not eliminate the student’s responsibility to pay for the class. Having a delinquency at SRJC blocks future class registrations. In addition, there is a $10 per check fee for returned checks.

Closed Courses

If a class is listed as 'Closed', that means that there are no more seats available to add. Please check back later to see if a space becomes available.

Restricted Courses

Some Community Education courses are not enabled for online registration. These courses will be listed as 'Restricted'. Contact us for information on how to register for restricted courses.

Class Changes

Instructors, dates, and locations are subject to change without notice. Class meetings canceled due to unforeseen circumstances may not be rescheduled.

Canceled Courses

Register now! Courses with low enrollment may be canceled. If a class is canceled by the Community Education Office, students enrolled in the class will receive full refunds.

Age Guidelines: Youth

SRJC’s Community Education classes are primarily designed to serve adult learners (with the exception of Alive at 25, which is specifically designed for youth drivers). Students 18 and older may self-register for Community Education courses online. Some instructors allow students as young as 15 to participate in their courses. Enrollment of students ages 15 -17 in standard Community Education courses requires special permission of the instructor, and a Liability Waiver signed by the student and a parent or legal guardian. In some cases, a parent may be required to register for the class as well. To inquire about registering a minor, please contact us.

Procedures for Community Education Borrowers

Community Education Borrowers must sign up for a Community Education Borrower library card at Doyle or Mahoney Circulation desks. The CEB library card is only valid for the current semester in which the student is enrolled in a Community Education class. The patron must provide a picture ID and proof of enrollment. The patron must show a valid picture ID with each use of the CEB library card.

The libraries will use the SR Web portal to create an SID number and pin code for the patron (https://portal.santarosa.edu/SRWeb/SR_SIDrequest.aspx).

The libraries will authenticate patron in SA system – in order to give the patron 1 hour computer use per day.
