For convenience and flexibility, San Jacinto College offers a range of academic and technical courses on weekends at all three campuses. Courses are available on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays, with classes being held during mornings, afternoons, and evenings.
The College offers the weekend courses to help every student succeed, no matter the circumstances. “San Jacinto College provides a large selection of classes in a format that is convenient for students,” commented Dr. Bill Raffetto, provost of the San Jacinto College North Campus. “In addition to day and evening classes, we also offer distance learning classes. However, some students prefer face-to-face classes but are not able to come to our campuses during the week. For these students, weekend courses are ideal.”
Registration is under way now at all three San Jacinto College campuses for weekend courses that begin on Sept. 11.
