The college serves over 18,000 students each year at campuses and centers in Rocklin, downtown Roseville, Grass Valley, and Truckee. In addition to offering 126 degrees and certificates, the college provides a broad range of Community Education (non-credit) courses and is one of only four community colleges in the nation to have an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). Sierra has over 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.
