What Students Are Saying

3.25 Average Rating
Do not underestimate San Jac's capacity to provide you with education and socialization. The professors take notice of individual growth, and if you make a good impression, they will recommend you to go on free trips and give you access to some overlooked scholarships. They will also introduce you to other members of their department and of higher departments; the higher the department that recognizes you, the better the recommendation letters you will receive.

Once you know where the student center is you can find any building. On rainy days be sure to wear rain boots or high shoes, the puddles are crazy in the walkways.

Stay on top of your financial aid, classes, studying and don't be afraid to ask questions.Also getting involved in extracurricular activities are a great way to boost your chances of getting into a university if planned.
Clarissa from LA Marque, TX
A lot of people say negative things about San Jac because it is just a community college. People from my school would call it the 13th grade. But the way I see it you still get the same education that you would get at a 4 year university. You shouldn't listen to the negative opinions of others influence your decision to attend this college.
Elsie from Houston, TX
I highly recommend this school. If you want to graduate from a big college then I recommend this school all the more for your basics. San Jac is a 2-year school and it just makes so much more sense to me to get your basics out of the way at a lower cost school, that could also cover the basics better than a bigger school. You can still go to and graduate from your dream school (mine is UTD) this way and it wont cost as much. Just remember to make sure to take courses that your dream school will accept!
One more thing: Grades. If you want to do well, you have to put some effort in. Let the teacher know if you have a hard time figuring something out. They will help you through it. Also, listen to other students when you're registering for classes (make sure not to wait until the last minute). Some teachers are harder than others and some teachers just teach better than others. If you want to do well, make sure you show up for every class and take good notes. If you have to miss a day, talk to your professor, he/she probably understand. Having a friend or just swapping numbers and e-mails with someone is also a great thing to have or do. They can study with you or you can borrow notes from each other if you have to.
Good luck!

Study hard. Don't start slacking until the first day of vacation.

Bring your lunch! It seems like such a simple tip, but it will save you a lot of money from those fast food trips everyday! Plus it's healthier. Also, read the textbook for your class. Since San Jacinto has implemented the QEP It's in the Book! teachers have been using textbooks in their lectures more to ensure the student that the information being taught is in the book. I would definitely advise to read your textbook because it helps! A super important thing to remember, though obvious, is to go to class. Once you have signed up for a course, you're paying for it, so not going to class is only hurting you; your education and finances! Make sure to sign up for class times you know you will be able to attend; if you're a night owl, don't sign up for an 8:30 history course! Know your limits with time. Most importantly, though, once you start school, don't lose track of what you need to do. Remember due dates and homework!

Be patient with financial aid, but start early. Books are expensive if you want to save shop around.
Ranisha from Dayton, TX
Get involved! Don't just attend classes. Join clubs and organizations. The people you meet can impact you for the rest of your life. Also the teachers here want to help you, take advantage of that!
