What is the College to Career (C2C) program?

The College to Career Program is a three-year program designed to help students, with intellectual disabilities and/or autism, obtain employment in Sonoma County and in the career area of their choice. 

The C2C program at SRJC is one of eight such programs in the State of California and partners with the California Department of Rehabilitation and Regional Centers of California.

Admission is a competitive process and C2C only accepts about 20 new students annually. Students who seek admission to C2C are required to submit an application and attend an interview with our C2C Coordinator.
