The Mt. San Jacinto Community College District was formed in 1962 by a vote of the citizens in Banning, Beaumont, Hemet and San Jacinto. The college enrolled its first students in the fall of 1963, holding classes in rented facilities. The San Jacinto Campus was opened in 1965 with two buildings and has grown into a comprehensive college campus serving the needs of students and the community. In 1975, the residents of Temecula, Lake Elsinore, Perris and adjacent areas voted to join the Mt. San Jacinto Community College District, increasing the college’s area to the present 1,700 square miles. Although the boundaries have remained stable since 1975, the District has changed dramatically, especially since the 1980s. In recent years, unprecedented population growth has fostered the highest rate of enrollment increase of all 112 community colleges. In response to this intense growth, Mt. San Jacinto College opened its Menifee Valley Campus in October 1990. By the end of its first year, there were 2,100 students attending classes at the Menifee Valley Campus. Today the campus serves nearly 19,000 students each semester.

Our Mission Mt. San Jacinto College, a California Community College, offers accessible, innovative, comprehensive and quality educational programs and services to diverse, dynamic, and growing communities both within and beyond traditional geographic boundaries. We support life-long learning and student success by utilizing proven educational methodologies as determined by collaborative institutional planning and assessment. To meet economic and workforce development needs, MSJC provides students with basic skills, general and career education that lead to transfer, associate degrees and certificates. Our commitment to student learning empowers students with the skills and knowledge needed to effect positive change and enhance the world in which we live. 7

Graduation Requirements and Procedures

What is a Degree with a Guarantee? The Associate Degree for Transfer (AA-T or AS-T) is a special, new degree offered at California Community Colleges. To pursue this special degree rather than a traditional AA or AS degree, you should meet with a counselor to develop an educational plan that puts you on the path toward the AA-T or AS-T degree. The guarantee itself means that students who earn an AA-T or AS-T degree and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major. With the special degree, you may be given a GPA bump when applying to an impacted campus outside of your local area or an impacted major that is deemed similar. In addition, once at the CSU, if you are admitted and enrolled in a designated similar degree program you have the opportunity to complete your bachelor’s degree with as little as 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of coursework. A counselor will help you determine which CSUs offer bachelor’s degrees that correspond to your AA-T or AS-T degree. It is still important for you to apply to the schools that interest you and follow admissions deadlines to be considered.

Website: Counseling What Courses Do I Need To Take? Who do you talk to when you can't decide what classes you should take, what your major will be, to what university you want to transfer? A MSJC counselor, of course! Counselors are travel guides throughout a student's stay at Mt. San Jacinto College. Mt. San Jacinto College has a topnotch staff of counseling professionals who can help you make the right decisions for your education. Counselors can assist students with a variety of academic, career, and personal needs: 

Academic counseling also provides students with information about the requirements for the certificate and associate degree majors offered at MSJC.

Career Counseling: is available to help students evaluate their interests, talents, and personality to develop academic and career goals.

Transfer Counseling: assists students in developing a smooth transition plan for transferring to a four-year college or university. In preparation for transfer, counselors provide assistance with general education requirements, course equivalencies, and transfer contacts.

Website: Enrollment Admissions Requirements Residents of California who have graduated from high school, passed the California High School Proficiency Examination, or are 18 or older and can profit from instruction may attend Mt. San Jacinto College. Out-of-state residents and citizens of other countries here on student visas may also attend Mt. San Jacinto College, subject to regulations that can be obtained from the Enrollment Services Office. These students will be required to pay non-resident tuition fees. Admission New and returning students must complete an application for admission, which will provide the college with demographic information about students. Federal or state law, or college policy requires this information. Other information will assist the college in determining whether the student needs to be referred to orientation or assessment programs. It is highly recommended that students provide the college with official transcripts from high school(s) and previous college work at the time of admission. Enrollment Priorities The California Community College Board of Governors approved changes that will establish system-wide enrollment priorities designed to ensure classes are available for students seeking job training, degree attainment or transfer and to reward students who make progress toward their educational goals. Beginning fall 2015, new students who have completed college orientation, assessment and developed education plans as well as continuing students in good academic standing who have not exceeded 100 units will have priority over students who do not meet these criteria. Among these students, active-duty military and veterans and current and former foster youth will continue to have first call on courses. Those in Extended Opportunity Programs and Services and Disabled Students Programs and Services also have priority, however there is a 100-unit limitation. Another change in registration appointments in effect beginning Fall 2015 is the College Readiness mode. All new, returning, and continuing students are given a registration date based on where a student assesses in MATH and ENGLISH or the highest level completed.

TO APPLY

AID EACH

You must re-apply for Financial Aid each year. To apply for financial aid at MSJC, students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or CA Dream Act application (undocumented students). The FAFSA is a multi-purpose form that is used to apply for federal aid as well as California Grants from the Student Aid Commission. The FAFSA is available online at fafsa.gov. The CA Dream Act application is for undocumented students to apply for California aids. The Dream Act is available online at dream.csac.ca.gov.

7 STEPS TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID Step 1: FAFSA or CA Dream Applications

FAFSA Complete the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at fafsa.gov. DO NOT mail your FAFSA to MSJC. You may estimate your income if you have not completed your 2015 IRS tax return. If you (and your parents if dependent) apply for a FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov, you will be able to sign your FAFSA electronically. This saves time! Approximately 3-5 business days after you filed your FAFSA to the Federal Processor, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) via email, if you provided an email address on your FAFSA, or 7-10 business days by mail if no email was provided. If you do not receive your SAR, please call 800-433-3243 or check online at fafsa.gov. Review the SAR to make sure all the information is correct. If corrections are needed, complete Part II of the SAR and mail Part II back to the Federal Processor. If you have your FSA ID, you may make corrections online. If no corrections are needed, keep the entire SAR for your records. MSJC will receive this information electronically. CA Dream Application The California Dream Act allows students who meet AB540 criteria to apply for and receive funds from certain state and institutional financial aid programs. If you are an undocumented AB540 student, complete the 2016-2017 CA Dream Application online at dream.csac.ca.gov/. You may estimate your income if you have not completed your 2015 IRS tax return. Review your application to make sure all the information is correct. Check your application status and/or make corrections at dream.csac.ca.gov/. Step 2: Cal Grant GPA Verification If you are a California resident or an eligible AB540 student and did not receive a Cal Grant in previous years, you must submit a 2016-2017 FAFSA or CA Dream application and a completed GPA Verification Form to California Student Aid Commission by March 2, 2016 at csac.ca.gov/. Follow the instructions below to determine which school verifies your GPA on the 20162017 Verification Form. Step 3: Acknowledgement Email After we receive your Student Aid Report or California Aid Report, we will review the information to determine if additional documents are needed from you in order to ensure the accuracy of the information you reported, as required by federal and state regulations.

You should receive an acknowledgement email in your student email account 1-2 weeks after you receive your SAR. If you do not receive an email you may call Financial Aid to check your status. 39

We will only review the files of students that are eligible to receive aid. If you are in an ineligible SAP status we will only review your file once you have reinstated. Applications are reviewed in order by date you completed your file (submitted all requested documents). During this process, it may be necessary to request additional information for clarification or to resolve discrepancies. You are encouraged to respond quickly. Please note: If you received a Board of Governors Fee Waiver based on your initial FAFSA submission and later determined ineligible, you will be rebilled for your registration fees.

STUDENT SERVICES

Step 7: Disbursement After receipt of the financial aid award notification (email) letter, aid will be disbursed according to the disbursement schedule. Checks for each semester will be mailed no earlier than the first week of classes.

If you are a new or returning student to MSJC and did not attend the previous term, and if you have been awarded the Federal Pell Grant, we must verify with the Department of Education that you have not received financial aid from another school prior to any disbursements. A hold will be placed on your financial aid record for a 7 day period until we receive verification.

When a type of Financial Aid is based on financial need, generally it is referring to the federal definition of financial need. To determine a student’s federally defined financial need, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or CA Dream Act application must be completed. The federal processor takes the information from the FAFSA and determines a student’s Expected Family Contribution or EFC. This is the number used by schools to determine a student’s financial need at their school. Federal financial need is defined by subtracting a school’s Cost of Attendance minus a student’s EFC. The difference is a student’s federally defined financial need. The EFC will be constant regardless of which school the student chooses to attend.

Federal regulations require MSJC to establish Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress as a general eligibility requirement for financial assistance. A student must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress in a course of study regardless of whether the student previously received Financial Aid. These rules apply to all course work you have taken at MSJC or any college or university; (including college level classes taken during high school) whether or not you received Financial Aid for those classes. There are three parts to the SAP rules:   

STUDENT SERVICES

Federal Financial Aid Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (FASAP)

Maintain a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average. Your cumulative completion rate must be at least 67% for all classes you have ever taken. You cannot attempt more than 150% of the normal credits required for your degree or certificate program. For example, a student in a 60 credit-hour program can attempt 90 credit-hours (60 hours times 150%). If you have questions about your program’s maximum eligibility, contact the Financial Aid Office.

Note: The total credits counted in these calculations include credits attempted by you, including failed, withdrawn or courses. A student who has exceeded the 150% standard is longer eligible for Financial Aid whether or not rules one or (above) were

If you want to earn a bachelor’s or higher degree, you must “transfer” to a four-year university. Transfer requirements usually fall into two categories: General Education (GE) and Preparation for the Major. Each will depend on where you plan to earn your bachelor’s degree. For assistance in learning which GE pattern you should follow and what classes are required for preparation for your major, contact the Counseling Department for additional guidance.

Transfer to a University Complete Your Transfer Requirements Transfer courses are designed to parallel lower-division offerings at four-year colleges and universities. Through the transfer curriculum, MSJC students may complete freshman and sophomore requirements in two years and transfer to the university with junior or upper division status.

SUCCESS TOOLS

S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym for the 5 steps of specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based goals. It’s a simple tool used to go beyond the realm of fuzzy goal-setting into an actionable plan for effective results. Specific: Goals should be simply written and should clearly define what you are going to do. Specific is the What, Why, and How of the S.M.A.R.T. goals tool. Measurable: A goal without a measurable outcome is like a sports competition without a scoreboard or scorekeeper. Numbers are an essential, put concrete numbers in your goals to know if you’re on track. A measurable goals lets you know when you have achieved it.

Attainable: Far too often, people set goals beyond reach. Dream big and aim for the stars but keep one foot firmly based in reality. Relevant: Achievable goals are based on the current conditions and realities of the environment. Time-Based: Goals and objectives just don’t get done when there's no time frame tied to the goal-setting process. Whether your goal is to graduate or increase your GPA choose a time-frame to accomplish your goal.

S.M.A.R. T. Goal Example: I will graduate with an Associate’s Degree in Communications Studies in the Spring of 2017.

What is Plagiarism? Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense: According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means  to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own  to use (another's production) without crediting the source  to commit literary theft  to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward. But can words and ideas really be stolen? According to U.S. law, the answer is yes. The expression of original ideas is considered intellectual property and is protected by copyright laws, just like original inventions. Almost all forms of expression fall under copyright protection as long as they are recorded in some way (such as a book or a computer file). ALL      

turning in someone else's work as your own copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit failing to put a quotation in quotation marks giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not (see our section on "fair use" rules)

Most cases of plagiarism can be avoided, however, by citing sources. Simply acknowledging that certain material has been borrowed and providing your audience with the information necessary to find that source is usually enough to prevent plagiarism.

Tips for Academic Success Attend every class. When you miss classes, you miss notes, assignments, lectures, and more. If you violate the attendance policy for a class, you could fail that class or be dropped from the class. Avoid absences every chance possible.

2.

Be Organized. Use some type of a planner either digital or hardcopy to keep track of assignments and due dates. Keep a separate notebook for each class.

3.

Manage your time well. Schedule study sessions and time to complete home work. Learn to say no and learn how to take time for yourself.

4.

Be Committed to your class. Do every assignment on time. Participate in class and communicate with your instructor.

5.

Take good notes. Take notes that are easy to read so that you can refer back to them. If you miss a class, ask for a copy of the lecture notes or get the notes from a friend.

6.

Know how to read a text book. SCAN words in bold and italic print, summaries, and charts. READ with a purpose. REVIEW by scanning the material again to check your comprehension.

7.

Study smart. Find a quiet place to study that is free of distractions. Start studying as soon as possible while the information is still fresh in your memory.

8.

Know how to take tests. Have all the materials that you need. Answer the questions that you know first. Come back to the questions that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure about.

71

STUDENT SUCCES TOOLS & RESOURCES

1.


9.

Reduce Test Anxiety. Study early and often so that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always prepared for a test. Take a deep breath, then read each question carefully, one at a time.

10.

Use MSJCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resources. Resources such as the Learning Resource Center, Instructors, Advisors, Counselors, and the Library. Libraries are made for students. Because libraries offer few distractions, most people find they are able to accomplish more In less time.

11.

Study. Plan a minimum of two hours of study time per week for every one unit of credit that you are taking. You will see the difference at exam time.

12.

Find the best time of the day for you to study. Choose a study time when you feel refreshed and awake. This may be early in the morning or late at night. Experiment and see what works best with your schedule. If you are not a morning person, try evenings. Remember not to get too comfortable. If you choose a time when you are tired and ready for bed, you will fall asleep! Also, use this rule when taking classes.

Tips for Academic Success

Study difficult subjects first. Most of your time. We study our favorite or easiest subjects first, putting off more difficult tasks. But if you study your worst subjects first, the rest of the day will be a breeze. You will have a better understanding of the material and be less likely to fall asleep while studying.

14.

Take frequent breaks. Avoid marathon study sessions. Like a runner, you will collapse at the end or may not even make it through the race. Try studying in intervals of one hour, taking 10-15 minute breaks each hour.

15.

Pay Attention. Turn off your phone and social media accounts so that they are not vying for your attention.

CAMPUS POSTING/DISTRIBUTION OF MATERIALS


Introduction It is expected that all students attending Mt. San Jacinto College will have read, understood, and will abide by the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Standards of Conduct. The MSJC Standards of Conduct sets forth standards of conduct for its students to create a safe learning environment for the campus community and affirm the values of honesty and integrity essential to academic life and personal development. STANDARDS OF CONDUCT POLICY (BOARD POLICY 5500) The Board of Trustees and the campus community at Mt. San Jacinto College support a harmonious, safe, and productive learning environment. To promote such an environment, the Board of Trustees and the Superintendent/President have established procedures for the imposition of discipline on students in accordance with the requirements for due process of the federal and state law and regulations. The procedures shall clearly define the conduct that is subject to discipline, and shall identify potential disciplinary actions, including but not limited to the removal, suspension or expulsion of a student. The Board shall consider any recommendation from the Superintendent/President for expulsion. The Board shall consider an expulsion recommendation in closed session unless the student requests that the matter be considered in a public meeting. Final action by the Board on the expulsion shall be taken at a public meeting.

MSJC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

STANDARDS OF CONDUCT

The procedures shall be made widely available to students through the college catalog, the Student Handbook and Orientation Guide, and other means. Select the link to review the Standards of Conduct Policy and Procedures, Page 46 of the 2016 -2017 College Catalog, Student Code of Conduct Policy and Procedures. STUDENT DISCIPLINE PROCEDURES (ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURE 5520) The purpose of this procedure is to provide a prompt and equitable means to address violations of the Standards of Student Conduct, which guarantees to the student or students involved the due process rights guaranteed to them by state and federal constitutional protections. This procedure will be used in a fair and equitable manner, and not for purposes of retaliation. It is not intended to substitute for criminal or civil proceedings that may be initiated by other agencies. Any suspected violations determined to be violations of law will be referred to the Mt. San Jacinto College Campus Police for further action. The Standards of Conduct pertains to student violations only. These Administrative Procedures are specifically not intended to infringe in any way on the rights of students to engage in free expression as protected by the state and federal constitutions, and by Education Code Section 76120, and will not be used to punish expression that is protected.

STUDENT EQUITY POLICY


The Board of Trustees for Mt. San Jacinto College acknowledges and accepts the U.S. Surgeon Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that smoking and the use of tobacco products is a leading cause of cancer and is associated with other health-related problems. The smoke from such tobacco products is an issue of concern for the entire campus community as it affects everyone on campus, smokers and non-smokers alike. Out of respect and concern for the health and welfare of the entire campus community comprised of students, faculty, staff and guests, the MSJC Board of Trustees establishes this policy to designate all properties owned, leased, or rented by the district as tobaccofree environments. Repeated violators of the tobacco-free campus policy will be subject to appropriate disciplinary actions (see AP 3570).
