Mt. SAC TEST:UP Program

  • What is TEST: UP?

Talent Expansion in Science and Technology: an Urban Partnership (TEST: UP)

This National Science Foundation Grant links California State University, Fullerton with Mt. San Antonio College and Santa Ana College together in activities and initiatives that will produce more science, technology, engineering and math transfers to four-year institutions. You can be a part of it by joining in the activities and events happening now at Mt. SAC!

  • Mentoring

Mentoring is available at Mt. SAC for STEM Students! Speak with faculties who have already made the journey into graduate education in your field. They will be able to "tell it like it is" and give you a picture of the career options open to you as a Mt. SAC STEM graduate.

E-mail Oscar Flores  , if you are interested in participating in the Mentoring Program.

  • Book Scholarship

The goal of the TEST: UP program is to provide advisement and guidance to Mt. San Antonio College students with career and educational goals in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). The program is designed to make students aware of support programs and resources on campus and to ensure that they are receiving the proper guidance for successful transfer to a four-year university. The TEST: UP STEM Scholars portfolio will assist you in preparing to transfer to a new institution by making sure you are prepared and aware of various opportunities available to you and you will also receive a $100 book scholarship for your participation in TEST: UP and completion of the STEM Scholars portfolio.

  • Supplemental Instruction (SI) Workshops

Introductory college courses in science and math can be challenging. SI is a learning enhancement program. SI is designed to organize and improve the ways in which you prepare for class outside of class-time. SI may be attached to your class section. These workshops will provide you with a systematic and disciplined approach for processing the subject material assigned by the professor. Supplemental instruction sessions are not remedial and are open to every student in your class. Ask your instructor if there is a SI workshop for your class.

If you are looking for a place to study, join TEST: UP in   Building 61 room 3316!
