Mt. SAC Student Services Open Saturdays In January

WALNUT, Calif.—To provide additional convenience for current and late-registering students, Mt. San Antonio College’s Admissions and Financial Aid offices will be open each Saturday in January from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The weekend hours allow students to avoid the usual lines associated with registration at the beginning of the semester, and they can take advantage of the complete array of student services, including late registration assistance, help locating open classes, assistance with financial aid applications, assessment, counseling, and other support services.

“Our concern is to meet the needs of our students and to help then get adjusted in the Spring Semester,” said Student Services Vice President Audrey Yamagata-Noji. “Mt. SAC offers Friday night and weekend classes, so for those students, we really needed to be open.”

The Admissions Office and other student services are located on the lower level of the campus Student Services Building (9B). Mt. SAC’s Registration Assistance Centers, Counseling, and Bursar’s offices will also be open to help students on Saturday, Jan. 15, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition to the recently added Saturday hours, the Admissions Office is open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
