In 2020-21, more than 1,700 students earned Career Education certificates in 100 programs, and over 1,700 graduates are being awarded nearly 2,300 degrees.

SRJC President Dr. Frank Chong applauded the faculty and staff who worked tirelessly to continue instruction and services throughout this difficult year. He said that it is more important than ever to celebrate the accomplishments of these dedicated students.

“They should be incredibly proud of what they’ve achieved in the face of so many challenges,” he said. “These students have shown that they are determined, resilient individuals and I have no doubt they will go on to do great things. I’m so glad SRJC could be a part of that.”

The community is welcome to join the ceremonies to celebrate the graduates and certificate completers.
