12.15.2016 | By Amanda Fenwick
PASADENA, Texas – Registration is open for the spring 2017 semester at San Jacinto College.
Traditional spring classes begin Tuesday, January 17, 2017, following the Monday Martin Luther King Day holiday; while Weekend College courses begin Friday, Feb. 3. The registration payment deadline is Thursday, Jan. 5. Registration remains open for the spring 2017 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.
“Our educational planners and financial aid advisors are here to help new and current students navigate the enrollment and registration process,” said Joanna Zimmermann, associate vice chancellor, student services. “We understand that not everyone who comes to San Jacinto College knows the educational pathway they want to follow. Our staff is knowledgeable and has the resources available to help students find their passion.”
Students are encouraged to apply for financial aid if they have not already done so. Students should begin the financial aid process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There is no fee to apply, and assistance is available by contacting a San Jacinto College financial aid representative. More information about financial aid is available on the San Jacinto College financial aid website. The San Jacinto College FAFSA Code is 003609.
San Jacinto College can assist students in choosing a career path; selecting 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.
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 classes via the Weekend College program, a prescribed pathway, can complete an associate of arts degree 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.
