We are pleased to announce that Mt San Jacinto’s First Year Experience program is now accepting applicants.  All students considering attending MSJC should immediately complete the application to be eligible for program incentives like early registration.

FYE APPLICATION: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/b55f619f95bf440ea8e565e8d4703fe7

Students agree to start their educational journey with GUID 100 and their math & English courses in their first-year to the transferable level.  The MSJC First Year Experience (FYE) Program is designed to make sure students have a smooth transition into college life. FYE provides students with extra support during their first two semesters so they can successfully complete their basic skills coursework and transferable college-level courses that contribute to their degree.

Completing this FYE application is an important step toward college success. Completion of the application is not a guarantee of admittance into the program, however, as seats are limited. We will email applicants directly to inform them of their admittance into the program and their next steps.

​​​It's the smart choice for college success!
