MSJC to offer limited summer session in 2013
Deferrals of payments by the State means MSJC can only offer mandated classes
Mt. San Jacinto College will offer only mandated classes during the 2013 summer session as a result of previous years’ funding cuts and the state’s deferrals of payments.
While the passage of Prop. 30 reduced the amount of funding cuts MSJC was facing, it does not restore years of previous cuts by the state. Prop. 30 means that instead of facing a $7 million funding cut, MSJC still has to bridge $3.5 million in funding cuts in 2012-13. In addition, the state continues to defer 41 percent of funding it owes to community colleges, leaving colleges to borrow money for operating costs.
In an effort to serve MSJC students and remain fiscally responsible, MSJC will offer classes that are mandated.
