San Jac is a great place for many reasons.
When choosing a college, different things are important to different people. But whatever you’re looking for, chances are we can offer some pretty compelling reasons why you’ll find it here. Here are some highlights that set us apart and give you the educational advantage.
- We are tax-supported by the state and surrounding district, so students pay only a fraction of the cost of their education.
- Tuition and fees are really low compared to most other colleges and universities.
- Students can commute and save on housing costs.
- We offer lots of financial aid opportunities and we make it easy to apply for them, including part-time jobs on campus.
Many Academic Options
- We offer more than 200 academic and technical degrees and certificates, and hundreds of courses that readily transfer to universities.
- Our technical courses give students the skills to enter the workforce in a full range of high-opportunity industries.
- Abundant continuing education courses are available for personal enrichment, workforce training and professional development.
- Faculty members take pride in being available to every student through face-to-face meetings, email and phone. This includes students enrolled in weekend, distance, continuing education and extension center courses.
- We offer day and evening classes every semester, including summer, at all three campuses as well as at our nine extension centers.
- Weekend classes in fall and spring and online classes provide even more learning options.
- Pick up college credit in one of our two mini-sessions over the Winter Holidays or in the late spring right before summer classes kick-off. These are two week intensives which will get you full credit in minimal time.
- If you miss the registration deadline... look for a Take 2 class that offers full course credit in a condensed schedule.
