Mt.SAC Programs

Junior and senior students registered full time in classes at district high schools may take courses for credit at Mt. San Antonio College. A student should complete the recommendation letter available from the counselor as soon as possible prior to the semester he/she plans to attend. Course credit may be earned for high school graduation or used toward completion of two-year occupation or four-year degree programs at Mt.SAC. Three Mt. SAC units equal ten high school credits. There are three programs at Mt.Sac that will help you earn high school and college credit. SEE THE COUNSELOR!
