A Message from the President
Welcome to Mt. San Jacinto College, one of the fastest-growing community colleges in California! In keeping with our mission and vision, MSJC provides an increasing number of educational opportunities for the diverse communities we serve. MSJC offers classes at five locations across our 1,700-square-mile district: the San Jacinto Campus, Menifee Valley Campus, San Gorgonio Pass Campus, Temecula Higher Education Center and the new Temecula Valley Campus. MSJC also offers a number of online classes to provide students with even greater flexibility. This catalog contains all of the information you need, including campus telephone numbers, student resources, course descriptions and district, state and federal policies.
MSJC courses and programs are designed to meet the needs of students. MSJC offers the required undergraduate classes to prepare you for transfer to a four-year institution. The college also provides pathways for students to begin new careers, develop or upgrade occupational skills, improve basic skills and to seek opportunities for personal enrichment and lifelong learning. Courses and programs are continuously reviewed to meet the criteria set forth by the Education Code, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the California Community College Board of Governors.
To ensure that students have the opportunity to take advantage of quality educational experiences, MSJC has created an environment that promotes student success, equity, diversity and access. That environment, anchored by the excellent faculty and MSJC support services, will assist each student to achieve their individual goals.
The future looks very bright for the college with its growing region, its expanding student base, and the addition of incredibly talented faculty and staff. We have enjoyed unprecedented growth in students and staff over the last few years, and we are about to embark on a period of dramatic facilities expansion in order to meet the needs of our dynamic region thanks to the passage of the $295 million Measure AA facilities bond approved in 2014 and the purchase of a building in Temecula in March 2018 that is scheduled to open in fall 2020.
MSJC has been recognized regionally as a “readers’ choice” favorite school or college and nationally by the Aspen Institute as a “Top 150” community college in 2015 and 2017. Ultimately though, our efforts are most evident in our graduates who go on to achieve and enhance the world around them.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the faculty, and staff, I encourage you to visit us, talk with us and choose MSJC as your educational partner.
