    Great job, Alfredo! 

    Watch our very own Alfredo Gomez talk with Melinda Spaulding on Hola Houston about the tremendous opportunities in STEM and why high school students should not shy away from the math and science classes.

    Check out Alfredo’s interview with Hola Houston here!

    Alfredo and San Jacinto College alumnus, Fernando Zuniga, also spoke with Univision 45 Houston about the value of a quality STEM education. Fernando recently graduated from San Jacinto College and will participate in a Rice University internship this summer before heading to the University of Houston to study engineering in the Fall.

    Weekend College starts Fall 2014 

    On behalf of Campus Services Dept.:


    I write to inform you that our department has received approval to reengage the Weekend College starting in fall 2014.  We are offering basic Associate of Arts degrees leading to transfer that can be completed within two (2) years.  I have attached an Excel file that shows the prescribed pathway toward degree completion and transfer for the fall 2014 cohort.  The pathway allows students to graduate with their AA degree and transfer within two years no matter if they start in the fall, spring, or summer.  In addition, I have attached another Excel spreadsheet that shows the course schedule for fall 2014.  This is subject to change.  Although the Weekend College is offered at the Central campus only, students from across the college are invited to participate.  Both Excel files are formatted and ready to print.
