Sierra College

Since its founding in 1936, Sierra College has focused on quality instruction and meeting the needs of the communities it serves. Serving more than 18,000 students each year at campuses and centers in Rocklin, Roseville, Grass Valley, and Truckee. In addition to offering 126 degrees, transfer programs and certificates, the college provides distance learning, non-credit courses, a broad range of community education (not-for-credit) and is one of only four community colleges in the nation to have an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). We have more than 1,300 employees (526 full-time faculty and staff and over 800 part-time faculty) in four locations across the 3,200-mile district. Sierra graduates can be found in businesses and industries throughout the region. As the predominant institution of higher education in the Nevada County region we bring to the table a dynamic background in educating our community members to be active, highly skilled and qualified members of our regional workforce. We actively support our region’s economic development efforts by providing high-quality, affordable educational and training programs.
