The "College Basics"

We've got your basics covered!

We've all heard of "the basics" but what does this actually mean? The Basics, sometimes called core curriculum, is required, regardless of your major. This core set of classes is taken by all Texas undergraduate students to make sure that no matter where you receive your degree, you'll have gained an understanding of general subjects included in the core curriculum. These requirements ensure that you receive a well-rounded and balanced education. At San Jacinto College, we've put together specific plans to help you knock out those "basics" and apply them toward a variety of four-year degrees. The College also has strong partnerships with universities to ensure that your core curriculum is approved for transfer. San Jacinto College has your basics covered.
