A New Opportunity for First Time, Full Time

One of the many obstacles students face with higher education is the financial
viability of pursuing that instruction. Scholarships and loans aside, there aren’t many alternatives for educational backing for students. Student loans and competitive programs offered through accredited collegiate systems often make it difficult and increase the hardships of those seeking educational opportunities.


The Public Information and Marketing Office of Mt. San Jacinto College released information about a potential community solution. Mt. San Jacinto College serves about 26,000 students in a district covering 1,700 square miles from the San Gorgonio Pass to Temecula.


Accompanying its new term, Fall 2019 registration which opens in July and the semester beginning Aug. 12, is the new MSJC Promise Program.
Mt. San Jacinto College introduces a new program beginning this Fall 2019 semester to assist first time, full-time students in tuition expenses. The MSJC Promise program provides free tuition to first-time, full-time students. More importantly, it provides an opportunity to overcome those financial barriers.

Dr. Roger W. Schultz, the Superintendent and President of Mt. San Jacinto Community College share students concerns. “We know that tuition can be a major financial barrier that prevents people from attending college,” said Dr. Schultz, “The MSJC Promise will remove that obstacle for incoming students who qualify. We urge students to take advantage of this great program to earn a high-quality college education tuition-free at MSJC.”


When it comes to the community, programs like the MSJC Promise Program are there to benefit residents. By helping the community gain access to quality educational resources, one is molding the lives of prospective students as well as creating a platform for disadvantaged individuals to develop new disciplines. The MSJC Promise has created a door for community residents to succeed.


“We are doing what we can to help provide all residents of our communities more access to quality higher education we offer at Mt. San Jacinto College, whether we’re providing free tuition or campuses closer to where our students live and work,” Schultz said. “We are committed to providing higher education that improves the quality of our students’ lives. We will continue to look for additional avenues to help make MSJC even more accessible to our communities.”
