Tenth Student Government Assembly Meeting: August 19th, 3 PM


SRJC homepage was newly redesigned and it went live on Monday, June 24, 2019. The modern design is intended to provide students with easily navigable resources and to support the day-to-day needs of both students and employees. The college is committed to continually reassessing the efficacy of this design to ensure it follows best practices and last trends in web design, and it fits the current needs of SRJC.Thank you to the many students who provided input on the redesign and to all students for your support as we engaged in this multiyear project. We hope the redesign helps support your ongoing success as you continue your studies at SRJC!

SMART Train Passes Available for Fall 2019

In our continuing efforts to provide sustainable transportation alternatives for our students, SRJC has partnered with SMART on a special Eco-Pass program. Student transportation fees will help to subsidize the cost, reducing the fare to only $260 for a semester pass,  August 19th – December 20th, 2019. The regular cost for this type of pass would be $517.50, which is already a discounted price. This pass will provide you unlimited ridership, any time the train is running, for the course of the Fall semester.

Passes are on sale now, and will be first-come, first-serve. To purchase a pass, please visit one of the following locations on either campus; At the Accounting Window in Bailey Hall on the Santa Rosa Campus, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM or the First Stop Center, Jacobs Hall, PC109 on the Petaluma Campus. You can call (707) 527-4424 for more information. Here are some more details of the program.

SMART Eco-Pass Program for SRJC Students

  • This Eco-Pass is for my use only, as a student of Santa Rosa Junior College. The Eco-Pass is non-transferable, cannot be sold, transferred or duplicated, and may not be provided to or used by anyone else other than the participating student to whom it is issued, including family and friends. If someone other than myself is found using this Eco-Pass on SMART, that person may be subject to a fine.

  • Students must tag their Eco-Passes on the Clipper reader at the SMART station platform each time they embark and disembark the train. 

  • SMART, in its sole discretion, may replace damaged, lost or stolen Eco-Passes.

Our head men’s and women’s swim & dive coach, Jill McCormick is offering this class online this fall which focuses on the fundamentals of coaching as a profession.

Coach McCormick’s teams have won more state titles than any other program in SRJC history.


Coaching Sports focuses on the components and characteristics of coaches and sport programs. Students will examine and develop coaching techniques, styles and philosophies pertaining to the planning, management and competition in sports.  This course is also aligned with American Sports Education Program (ASEP) and prepares students to take both the ASEP test and the CIF test, which are required by many youth coaching associations.


  • Principles of Coaching (philosophy, objectives, coaching style, character)
  • Principles of Behavior (communication, motivation, management)
  • Principles of Teaching (technical skills, tactical skills, planning)
  • Principles of Physical Training (basics, energy fitness, muscular fitness, nutrition)
  • Principles of Management (team, program, relationships, risk)
