– Menuka Shrestha, Nepal
“This journey at SRJC has been the best experience of my life. Though I was unfamiliar with the language and also the culture of this country, the students of SRJC have welcomed me with open hearts. Before I was admitted to SRJC I wanted two things: good education and good friends. And this is exactly what I have found in this campus. I can honestly say that SRJC is my home. Let it be yours too!”

Transfer & Academic Success

With a reputation of academic excellence since its founding in 1918, Santa Rosa Junior College is regarded as one of the premier two-year colleges in the United States. Many international students from SRJC have successfully transferred to top ranked universities, including UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UCLA, San Francisco State University and Cornell University.

Estimated Annual Education & Living Expenses

“I would never have guessed that I would one day attend Santa Rosa Junior College because being from West Africa, I always targeted famous universities. However SRJC is the place to go for international students because on top of getting a premium education comparable to the one you get at four year schools for the first two years, it is way cheaper. Moreover, you get to have one on one time with the teachers which helps you understand the material better. I have met so many friends, from different countries and I would never forget the wonderful time I had at SRJC.”
