In November 2015, voters in the San Jacinto College community authorized the College to invest $425 million to improve learning facilities throughout the District. These bond funds will allow San Jacinto College to renovate nine facilities that are at least 30 years old; build new, state-of-the-art buildings focused on petrochemical manufacturing, engineering, culinary, and cosmetology training; provide space for dual credit and early college high school programs; update much needed infrastructure; and improve technology and security. These new facilities and the upgrades to existing buildings are critical for our students to continue to learn in a quality environment with hands-on instructional experiences.
For more than 50 years, San Jacinto College has been the institution of choice for students throughout East Harris County. We are a fiscally sound institution, and currently hold bond ratings of AA and Aa2 by Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s, respectively. Our work in helping students complete what they start has been recognized nationally by the Aspen Institute, which named us a Rising Star recipient in 2017, and one of the top five community colleges in the country.
Watch our progress as we work toward improving the learning environment for San Jacinto College students, as well as our community. This website is updated regularly so that our community knows how their bond dollars are used.
