MSJC Opens for Spring 2015 Semester to nearly 14,500 Students

​January 20, 2015

Late-Start Classes and Summer School will also help students achieve educational goals

Chadelaine Huertas was excited to get to her math class at Mt. San Jacinto College on Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015 – the first day of the spring 2015 semester. It will mark her first-ever college class.

The Beaumont resident said her goal is to earn a degree in geographic information systems to help her land a job at the Redlands-based ESRI. She was pleased to attend MSJC’s San Gorgonio Pass Campus and happy with the education plan counselors laid out for her so she can achieve her goals.

“It’s convenient,” Huertas said. “And the plan to earn the associate’s degree works well for me.”

Huertas was one of 14,496 who enrolled for classes for MSJC’s Spring 2015 semester. Across the district, students filled seats, lined up at the campus bookstores and started their journey to earn an associate’s degree, transfer to a four-year university or earn a career certificate. MSJC offers classes at the San Jacinto, Menifee Valley and San Gorgonio Pass campuses and the Temecula Education Complex and Temecula Higher Education Center.

MSJC will offer “late-start” classes that begin in March. Seats are open in a variety of classes, including nursing, Spanish and computer sciences. A robust summer program is also planned to help students reach their educational goals.

River Morgan, of San Jacinto, was attending MSJC for the first time, too. He was able to get a seat in math, English and biotechnology classes. He said he plans to transfer to a four-year university to earn a degree in physics. He praised the MSJC counselors and financial aid employees who helped him.
