Five Big Reasons to choose MSJC:
1. Money: The difference per unit is $26 at MSJC vs. $339 at Cal State. Low cost of $960 for two years of transferable degree-applicable coursework (48 units) vs. CSU at $6,328 for two years of IDENTICAL coursework (48 units). As you're saving money on tuition, you'll put away extra money to spend when you do transfer to the university level.
2. Individual Career and Transfer Counseling: A new addition to our Athletic Department is a dedicated Student-Athlete Advisor. Jen Burleson has a Master's Degree in Counseling, and she played Intercollegiate Softball at Ohio State. Jen conducts grade checks and monitors athletes' progress towards their degree objectives. Our Transfer and Career Center also hosts several events for students on the Menifee and San Jacinto Campuses.
3. Playing Time: Parents don't realize that sending their daughters to a university will not guarantee playing time as a freshman or sophomore (even if they are very talented). At MSJC, talented players have a great chance of actually playing which better prepares the athlete to play once they do transfer on to play as a Junior and Senior.
4. Staying Local: Most of our recruiting targets Inland Empire High School Softball Players who want to get an affordable start on their education and stay close to home. Our players usually live with family, work part-time, and commute 10-30 minutes between campus and home. Playing locally --- parents and friends can watch your games and support you in person!
5. Tournament Exposure: In 2013, we will play approximately 45 games including 4 college tournaments. University scouts will attend these 2013 events played in Glendale (Feb), Menifee (Feb), Irvine (Mar) and San Diego (Apr). In the past 5 years, MSJC players have transferred on to play at 4-year state schools including CSUSB, SDSU, UCR and CSUSM. Playing for MSJC has helped several local players who were overlooked by colleges during high school. Our program recycles your talent back into consideration for university-level scholarships and playing positions.
If you are considering MSJC to begin your college and softball career, complete a Prospective Player Form to get the ball rolling!!! After high school and travel ball, most college freshmen stop playing ball and overlook this local opportunity to continue playing competitively. MSJC bridges the gap between high school and a 4-year degree, allowing student-athletes to keep playing softball, preparing for university-level (upper-division) coursework!
Incoming Freshmen: Complete a College Application, complete the Online Orientation, You also must take the Math/English Assesment Tests before you can register for classes. Apply for Financial Aid.
