PASADENA, Texas – Registration is open for the Fall 2015 semester at San Jacinto College.
Traditional Fall classes begin Monday, Aug. 24, 2015, while Weekend College courses begin on Friday, Sept. 11. The registration payment deadline is Thursday, Aug. 13. Registration remains open for the Fall 2015 semester after the payment deadline, but all financial obligations incurred after the payment deadline not covered by financial aid, installment payment plan, third party agreement, or scholarship, must be paid on the day of registration. Students may register and pay in full up to the start of class.
“We encourage students, if they have not already, to begin the financial aid process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA),” said Robert Merino, dean of financial aid services. “It is free to apply, and if students need assistance, they should contact a San Jacinto College financial aid advisor.”
Financial aid information is available online at sanjac.edu/financial-aid. The San Jacinto College FAFSA Code is 003609.
San Jacinto College also offers assistance with choosing a career path; deciding on an area of study; and the application, enrollment and registration processes. Educational planners are available on all San Jacinto College campuses to help students select courses that will easily transfer to a four-year college or university, or get them the skills they need to enter the workforce upon graduation.
“Our educational planners and advisors are here to help,” noted Joanna Zimmermann, interim vice president of student services. “We know that not everyone who walks through our doors knows what path they want to take. Our staff has the tools and resources available to help students find their passion. With more than 45 programs and 186 certificate and degree options, there is something for everyone at San Jacinto College.”
Students who are looking for an alternative to attending classes during the workweek should consider Weekend College or online courses. San Jacinto College offers a wide variety of weekend classes that are taught Friday through Sunday in various academic and technical programs. These courses provide another option for students who work during the week or cannot take classes in the traditional Monday through Friday format. Students who take weekend courses can complete an Associate of Arts and transfer to the university of their choice within two years. Online classes are available for some of the basic courses, offering full credit and transferability. For more information, visit the San Jacinto College online learning website.
