About the Associate Degree:
The Associate in Arts and Associate in Science Degrees can be earned at Santa Rosa Junior College. Requirements for graduation with an Associate Degree are prescribed by the California Community College System and the Board of Trustees of Santa Rosa Junior College.
It is the student's responsibility to file a Petition to Graduate by the deadline date during the semester in which he/she plans to complete the requirements. Official transcripts from all colleges previously attended should be submitted as part of the graduation evaluation process. Applicants are notified by mail of their eligibility for the degree.
Associate Degree Requirements:A student must fulfill all of the following requirements in order to receive an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science degree:
Requirements for an Associate Degree are determined according to the catalog in effect at the time of initial enrollment. In order to maintain catalog rights, a student must be in continuous enrollment; that is, enrollment in at least one credit course during each successive academic year.
For the purpose of catalog rights, the academic year begins each fall and ends with the subsequent summer session. When a break in enrollment occurs, degree requirements are determined according to the catalog in effect when continuous enrollment is resumed.
Students who do not remain in continuous enrollment are subject to all academic policies and requirements as stated in the College Catalog in effect at the time of their resumption of enrollment. Continuous enrollment is defined as enrollment in at least one credit course during each successive academic year.
Degree honors are determined by the student's overall grade point average (GPA) and includes transfer work submitted to SRJC. A student who has maintained a GPA between 3.20 and 3.39 will be graduated with honors; 3.40 and 3.59, with high honors; and 3.60 or higher, with highest honors.
It is possible for a student to be awarded more than one major upon graduation providing that all requirements are met for each major. For multiple majors, a single diploma with all majors listed will be issued. If one major leads to an Associate in Arts and the other to an Associate in Science, two diplomas will be issued.
