At San Jacinto College, we believe that a student’s success is our success! Everything we do stems from our core principles in an effort to support our students and community. Discover how our mission, vision, and values enable students to accomplish their academic goals.
San Jacinto College is focused on student success, academic progress, university transfer, and employment. We are committed to opportunities that enrich the quality of life in the communities we serve.
We understand that every student is on a unique academic journey. San Jacinto College students are a diverse mosaic — blending many perspectives on success. Two-fifths of our student body are first-generation college students, and their academic success has the potential to change their lives, their families, and their communities. Others aspire to master a trade, jump-start a new career, or are preparing to transfer to a university. Many of our students have other obligations and need a flexible schedule that allows them to balance education, work, and family.
No matter how you define it, success for every graduate drives our value system at San Jacinto College.
