Mt. San Jacinto College is a two-year community college offering a comprehensive day and evening program of transfer, vocational, and remedial education.
The original campus is located in the San Jacinto Valley which is approximately 100 miles east of Los Angeles and approximately 45 miles from the desert resort community of Palm Springs. The two towns nearest the campus, Hemet and San Jacinto, are small and attract many retired people from all over the United States and Canada.

The college is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the official national accrediting agency for this region.
The weather in the semiarid region is considered very pleasant. During the winter months, November-March, temperatures range from 32° F (0° C) at night to 70° F (21° C) during the daytime so students wear fairly light clothing. During the summer months, May-October, the temperature ranges from warm to very hot.
Mt. San Jacinto College does not have any on-campus housing nor do we maintain a listing of housing within the community; however, apartments are readily available and are reasonably priced.

INS Regulations

The Department of Immigrations and Naturalization of the United States government is very concerned with the legality of F-visa students in this country. For this reason they require that the students, at the time of arrival in the US, show a valid passport as well as the I-20 form from the college he/she is planning to attend. At this time an I-94 (Arrival-Departure record) will be stapled to the passport.
Mt. San Jacinto College will accept transfer students from other institutions in the United States but prior to transfer, a student must attend the college that
issued the I-20.
