Aspire is a dynamic program designed to provide essential educational support and services to increase the academic success, retention, degree completion, and transfer rates of African-American and other students enrolled at Mt. San Antonio College. We accomplish this through monthly workshops, academic counseling, and learning communities. Our aim is to develop a sense of “community” among African-American students, other students, faculty, staff and administrators.

Aspire provides:

  • MOTIVATION by offering inspirational workshops and events throughout the semester
  • CONNECTION to campus resources including Counseling, Career and Transfer services, Financial Aid, and other support services
  • ACADEMIC HELP through study groups, tutoring, and learning communities
  • CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING by providing educational forums and events that reflect and discuss African-American culture and history

Students in the Aspire program are required to:

  • Be currently enrolled at MT. SAC
  • Meet with the Aspire Coordinator for an Aspire Orientation
  • Meet with an Aspire Counselor once per semester
  • Attend at least one Aspire Event per semester
