First term class bundles

We've created a "bundle" of courses for new students starting in Fall 2020! These bundles include a schedule of courses that will:

  • focus on different Interest Areas,
  • provide you with a full course load, and
  • meet CSU and UC transfer requirements.

Click on the links below to see the schedule of classes you can take this fall at SRC in each interest area:

Course schedule bundles are designed to provide you:

  • English and Math in the first semester,
  • a minimum of 12 units (which makes you FT3 eligible for free tuition!),
  • a reasonable schedule that allows for breaks/lunch and time for tutoring,
  • a sampling of classes that introduce you to the various Interest Areas, and
  • classes that meet the degree, certificate, GE and/or IGETC requirements.

What the course schedule bundles are not:

  • These are NOT Learning Communities - these classes aren’t linked nor do they require a petition to enroll.
  • Students don’t have to take all the classes listed in the bundle - these are just suggested classes for new students.
  • This is not to replace counseling appointments or individual advising information received from a counselor! This is just a general starting point for new students in their first semester.
